This will cost you $99 per year, and gives you acces to publish your apps in their Appstore, and it will give you all kinds of tools, beta’s, and other resources a developer might need. If your app is approved you will get a notification that it has been placed in the store. If you are getting positive results, you are doing something right, if not, you should bring out an update to make your product even better.
