noteNote
This topic applies to the following marketplaces: Office Store and Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

After you have created your account, see How to: Add Payout and Tax Information for the next step.

Create a company account

ImportantImportant
If your company is already registered in Microsoft marketplaces with a Microsoft account, you must use that same Microsoft account to register in the Seller Dashboard. You will not be able to register your company in the Seller Dashboard with a different Microsoft account. The information you provide in the Seller Dashboard must be consistent with the information you provided in the Microsoft marketplaces with the same Microsoft account. For example, your company name and address must be the same.

Before you create your account, follow the Checklist for Creating Your Account to make the process faster and easier.

  1. Sign in to the Seller Dashboard with your company’s Microsoft account.

    noteNote
    You can only associate one Microsoft account with your company.

  2. In the REGISTRATION wizard, on the account details page, provide the contact information for your company’s administrator for the Seller Dashboard account under personal info.

  3. Under residential info, provide your residential address and personal phone number.

    noteNote
    This information is for identity verification purposes only.

  4. Under account type, verify that Company is selected, and then click NEXT.

  5. On the company details page, complete your marketing profile.

  6. Under legal profile, leave the check box selected if the contact information in your marketing profile is the same as the contact information for your legal profile. If it is not the same, click the check box to provide the contact information for your legal profile.

  7. Under company reference, provide the name and email of someone within your company, other than yourself, who can verify the status of your company or your status as an employee of the company. Make sure that you notify them that you have used them as a reference in the Seller Dashboard.

  8. Click SUBMIT FOR APPROVAL.

Your account is automatically routed to the approval process. For more information, see Understand the Account Approval Process.

  2. In the REGISTRATION wizard, on the account details page, add your personal info.

Next step: Add payout and tax information

If you want to offer apps for purchase, you also need to add payout and tax information and submit it for validation in the Seller Dashboard. If you are only offering free apps, then you do not need to add this information. You can add it later, but it takes some time to validate the tax information. If you know that you will offer apps for purchase, we recommend that you add it as soon as possible. See How to: Add Payout and Tax Information.
