Vendor Name Override Didn't Work!

I submitted an app to the BB App World. When submitting it I used the "override vendor name" option and specified the name of the company that I am developing the app for. However, after the app was approved, it shows my personal name as the vendor on the app world product page!

 

Did I misunderstand the "override vendor name" option?

Hi brandon272,

 

The MIDlet-Name override is not a cosmetic change on the store itself.  It simply changes the App Name (or Vendor Name) under the 'Application Management' screen on BB7 or lower.

 

It has no effect on PlayBook/BB10 and is only used in rare cases where the application may have been installed via the web (outside of App World) and using the MIDlet-Name override allows you to ensure the previous application not installed via App World is properly overwritten by the new application from App World.

I guess the next best option is to update the vendor name on the account. I've done so and this created a Change Request ticket. Any ideas on how long that takes to process?

Correct, that's the only way to get the Vendor Name displayed in the store to change. 

 

If you wanted to send me the Ticket # I can push it through, otherwise usualyl done within 24 hours.
