No they do not.
You need to pay with a Credit Card.

Vitrual cards

Can vuirtual cards be used such as Entropay?

Becaus how can people pay to be a seller when they do not have a card or can get one?

I have one but its frozen to pay back and cannot really get another
Apple really should cater for Paypal wher eyou and add a lot of payment options and go through your UK bank and also paid visa numbers too.

No. "vuirtual" cards cannot be used. Only banks or credit cards.

Every body have a card. Or you can ask a good friend.
They should accept wire transfert so, but Paypal ?

I'm sure Apple don't seek impulse buy from developper That's why thy don't need to have payment option like Paypal.

And payment made directly with a credit card with their own system are probably more traceable for them. It's better if there is any legal issue (foreign country laws, under age, trademark infringement, money laundering etc..)

So how long does it take Apple to send a number for you to send a cheque to become an app store seller?
