How to change the seller name?

Hi all

I want to change the seller name in app store (not copyright).

Please seniors help me with the proper way. No matter if it takes long process/time. I really need to know this as I want to hide my name in seller name.

Hope an useful detailed reply.
Thnks all in advance.

If I understood the rules correctly when I made my account, you have to register as an company to change/hide your name.

As i know, there is no way to change the seller's name. The seller's name always will be the name have you been registered with Apple. You must to register a company if you don't like your name there, but it's not possible to change it.

I think you can register as an individual and somehow "upgrade" your account to be registered as an enterprise.

Correct me if I'm wrong please.

You can change your seller name. I have done it. You have to email itunesconnect@apple.com

It can take quite a while to get a response. Also your tax info will need to be changed first to reflect the new name. All in all I think the process took about 2 months for me.

Are you a registered entity? From my understanding, there's no need to upgrade your account in any way but you have to prove the new name is indeed registered.
