Creating an Apple Business Manager Account:
Step by Step Guide
Prior to setting up your Apple Business Manager Account, HealthBenefitApp highly recommends creating a dedicated email address for your Apple Business Manager Account. Once that account is created, that email cannot be changed. For that reason, it’s best not to tie the account to a specific person.
We recommend you ask your IT Department to create an email, an email alias or an email “distribution list” that includes team members who should have access to the Apple Business Manager Account. An example might be “email@example.com” like firstname.lastname@example.org. Use that email to include members of the team now, or in the future as roles change.
Creating an Apple Business Manager Account
Step 1: Have your Business D-U-N-S Number ready. If you don’t have your D-U-N-S Number, HealthBenefitApp can look it up for you and send it to you via email. You can also do a look up here. D-U-N-S Lookup.
Step 2: Go to: https://business.apple.com/ to create your account.
- Are you authorized to create this Apple Business Manager Account. Yes.
- Will this account only be used for internal purposes (e.g. for employees only). Yes.
- If they ask any questions you may not know the answer to, please call HealthBenefitApp for support.
Upon review, Apple will then Approve your Account.
Please provide your Apple Business Manager user name and password to HealthBenefitApp.
When we login, we may need to enter a code for 2-Factor Authentication to gain access.
Trust the browser.
Within Apple Business Manager, under Settings (button at the bottom left). Go to your Enrollment Information.
Here, please do the following:
- Enable Custom Apps.
- Copy and email the Company name and Organization ID to HealthBenefitApp.
With this information, we can assign your HealthBenefitApp to your Apple Business Manager Account.
We will login to your Apple Developer Account and connect your HealthBenefitApp to your Apple Business Manger account by adding your Organization ID and Company Name for distribution. See highlighted blue area below.
This connection is immediate. Once your HealthBenefitApp is connected to your Apple Business Manager Account, it will be visible under the Custom App section of your account.
By selecting that custom app, we can generate 1-time use redemption codes and links for employees to download your app.
Once the codes are created, we download the list.
We use these codes and our proprietary process to enable your employees and family members access to their HealthBenefitApp by way of your company’s HealthBenefitApp Landing Page.
