How long does vendor registration take?

Hi all,

 

I'm not to Blackberry development and I am very interested in the Playbook, and the free PB offer.  My question is how long does it take to be accepted as a Vendor in order for me to submit apps for the PB?  I started the process and recieved and e-mail asking me to get a form notorized and I'm wondering how long it will take once I send the form in?  I really would like to be able to submit an app before the Feb 1 deadline.

 

Thanks

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

This didn't take long for me, maybe two weeks. There may be a little more delay at the moment due to alot of registrations i reckon but you should be able to submit your app till the deadline.

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

I received the request for documentation (notary form for individual, articles of incorporation or license for business) a day after applying.  I got around to sending it by email, three days later, and only a day after that received approval (this was for a business vendor application). 

 

That was only a few days ago, so I don't think they're being delayed significantly by the surge in applications.

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

hey zymatic,

 

also just  a reminder to always check your Spam folder if you have any filters set up. I have heard stories of RIM Vendor emails ending up there and causing vendors a massive amount of confusion and frustration. Good luck!

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

Thanks for all the info.  I haven't gotten around to getting my form notarized yet but I wanted to know if it was even worth it to try for the PB offer.  Thanks all.  I'm going to get my form done as soon as possible now.

If you are a strong coder and have confidence in trying new things, as long as you have a solid idea it should be no problem to meet the deadline... And it will be worth it.

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

registration took me 2 days.  it probably would have taken longer but they accepted email scans of my Canadian tax registration certificates (self-employed worker) so i didn't need to have my identification notarized.

Re: How long does vendor registration take?

Does any one know why RIM requires the identification to be notarized?  I can't really think of a reason they would need to do this?
