Hello.
I state that I have the "basic" XCode & SDK stuff, no 99$ one, no 299$.
I finished my app and I wanted to join itunesconnect.apple.com but I saw that...
"Apple ID does not have permission to access iTunes Connect." is the reply from the server.
I'm member of the "Developer Program".

Can someone help me? I should buy the 99$ version?

Thanks,
Simone Esposito.

    Since you have the SDK but haven't yet paid a fee, you are a Registered Apple Developer, but not yet a member of the iPhone Developer Program.
    ... I wanted to join itunesconnect.apple.com ...

    The iTunes Connect (ITC) site is only for members of the +Developer Program+ who are placing their apps in the iTunes Store for sale (or free distribution). Only Program members may test their apps on a device and place finished apps in the Store. So an ITC login would be of no use to you at this time.
    ... I finished my app ...

    If you haven't tested your app on a real, legal iPod, iPhone or iPad, it's not finished. You should normally pay the fee and become a Program member before starting to code your project since the behavior of your app on the actual device can be quite different from what you see on the Simulator.

    For example, the Simulator uses the memory of the OS X host, which is virtually unlimited in comparison to a mobile device. It's also a bad idea to test on an illegal mobile device, since the environment isn't necessarily the same as the target platform. For example, your app might have access to resources that won't exist on a legal device.
    ... I should buy the 99$ version?

    Yes! If you intend to properly test and distribute your app, pay the fee as soon as you can and become a member of the [iPhone Developer Program|http://developer.apple.com/programs/iphone].

    Hi KT:

    I noticed your replies on a thread regarding this message:

    "Apple ID does not have permission to access iTunes Connect."

    I registered for a developer account, paid the $99 and have gone through all the provisioning in the Iphone Development Center, but for some reason when I try to click to Itunes Connect, I get the above error message. I have never had a problem with this with my other developer account for our last app. Any idea what could be causing this? thank you!

    Hi Jeff, and welcome to the Dev Forum!

    Could the problem be that other account? Your new account has a different e-mail addy, right? Might be worth a try to hose your browser's cache and cookies, and maybe restart your Mac for good measure. Also, I seem to remember a case where logging directly into iTC failed, but using a Dev Center link worked (though there might've been a full moon that night). Oh.. and make sure you have the newest version of iTunes too.

    If none of the above is helpful, I'd contact iTC support. If it's urgent, ADC has solved similar login problems right over the phone in the past, though my most recent info predates the recent changes that merged ADC into the new Developer structure. Hopefully only the name has changed and the response to this type of problem is still just as fast.
