Managing your profile
You can add, update, and review the info in your developer account profile.
To access your developer account profile info, sign into your developer account, go to your Windows Store Dashboard, and then click Profile in the left menu.
The Profile page displays your current account info and status. The info is divided into these categories.
Note To change this info, click Account in the left menu. Not every field shown on the Profile page can be edited.
The display info section contains the info that will be used to manage your apps.
Publisher display name
The publisher display name is the name under which your apps are listed in the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Store.
Note You can change your publisher display name after you sign up and your account has been verified. If you decide to do this after you have published an app, you will need to modify the publisher display name in your app's packages, upload the updated packages, and then submit the apps for certification again.
The publisher ID is the string that uniquely identifies your Windows Store developer account in your packages. The publisher ID is assigned by Microsoft, and you can't change it.
The info in this section describes you, the developer who uses this developer account to submit and manage Windows Store apps. The person described here is the only one who can upload apps, review their status and activity, and receive e-mail messages from the Windows Store. We use this info to communicate about the account.
Note If you have a company account, changing this info may require us to verify your identity again.
Note This info applies to company accounts only. If you have an individual account, this section won't appear in your Profile page.
The info in this section describes who we contact at your company to verify the identity of the developer and the company. This person must have access to the identification documents that we need to verify the company's identity. This includes documentation such as a valid business license or business registration document; articles of incorporation, or a certificate of incorporation; or charter documentation, such as for banks, universities and government agencies. When we verify your identity, we will provide the complete list of info that we need.
Important If we can't contact this person, or if they don't approve your account, your account could be closed.
The right column of the Profile page describes the status of your developer account.
Displays your account type. If you have a company account, the status of your account verification is shown here.
Telemetry data collection
Displays your current app telemetry selection for Windows Store apps. You must collect telemetry data from your apps if you want to get data and statistics about their usage and quality.
The payout account is the account into which we deposit the money your apps make in the Windows Store. (Money from apps listed in the Windows Phone Store is handled separately; you can set up a payout account for those in your Windows Phone Dashboard.)
Note You must define a payout account in order to list apps that aren't free, or that use the Windows Store's commerce system for in-app purchases. (Note also that in certain markets, only free apps can be listed. In those markets, you won't have the option to set up a payout account.)
Displays the current status of your tax profile.
Note You must have a valid tax profile to list apps for sale in the Windows Store. You must also complete all required tax forms the countries/regions into which you want to sell your apps. (If you also list apps for sale in the Windows Phone Store, you'll need to set up a tax profile in your Windows Phone Dashboard.)
Developer account info
Displays the current status of your developer account and its expiration date.
The account renewal page is where you can see the payment account we use to renew your account before it expires and where you can see the current expiration date. See Renewing your developer account for more information.
The account info page is where you edit the account info that is displayed on the Profile page.
