    I recently was informed that to sell applications on the iTunes App Store I have to over the age of 18. Is this true? I was told that upon receiving my first payment I will be found guilty of Identity fraud as I am not in compliance with the terms of service. I can't find these terms and I don't want to ask Apple in fear of total annihilation. Does anyone know for 100% sure!

    US law states that one needs to be 18 to enter into a legal contract. Therefore, you need to be 18 to sell applications in the AppStore.

    It's also one of the conditions that you agreed to when signing up for everything.

    Just have your father sign, then he can transfer the money to you.
