The Apple Developer Program is just what it sounds like: a program from Apple for software developers working within the iOS and macOS ecosystems.
Accounts are available for a one-time fee of $99 and can be created on Apple's website.

Jamf Now Plus plan
The Jamf Now Plus plan might require that you get an Apple Developer Program account, depending on your desired functionality:
- Deploying existing .pkg files: You do not need an Apple Developer Program account to deploy files that are already in the .pkg format.
- Need to "re-package" a file into .pkg format before deployment: In order to repackage other file formats into a .pkg file, you will need to create that new package with a packaging tool (like Jamf Composer) and "sign" that new package with your Apple Developer Program account ID.
