Age Requirement?

Is there an age requirement for receiving the Playbook? I'm under 18 years old and I don't think there would be an age requirement but just to be sure, I posted this up.

That is a good question, I don't see it anywhere in the Terms and Conditions.

 

However, if you look at the Vendor Agreement ( when signing up to be an application vendor for App World ) you will notice this line:

"PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF MAJORITY UNDER THE LAWS OF YOUR JURISDICTION TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT."

 

I believe that means over the age of 18 if you are located in the United States.

See if your parents can enter into the agreement.

Yeah, I remember seeing somewhere on one of forms where it gave the option for parents/guardians to accept for you, if you are not of age, so it shouldn't be a problem for you.

Re: Age Requirement?

Not to mention you need to own a registered business to become a vendor.

Not true, you may be a regular person and register yourself in AppWorld, you don't have to have registered business. You will be displayed in lists under your name, as an coding artist.

Re: Age Requirement?

I currently registered as an individual because I don't have the documents they want for a business, but if I get those documents, can I switch over my account details to be that of my business or would I have to open an entirely new account?

Hey gluth, thanks! I didn't know you could register without a business! Now I know!


and, RottenOgre, I'm sure it wouldn't be a difficult process, you could probably just contact the AppWorld support guys and let them know you've started a business, and I'm sure they would help you right out!

Re: Age Requirement?

np BTW It was real fun to conform my identity with notary in country which is driven by civil law (it is required to register as vendor), I have made a notary conformed statement that during making of statement I was alive and got the same name as on my ID card Smiley Very Happy
