    I know there are plenty of threads about which discuss the 'Pending Contract' status, but I couldn't find any relevent to my situation.

    I'm in the UK and completed my contact, bank and tax information for the 'paid applications' contract online on 16th March. The following day (17th March) I printed off the PDF that Apple had emailed me (generated by what I entered online for the W8-BEN form), signed it and sent it off to the provided address (somewhere in Texas).

    Since then, I've been waiting for both the free and paid contracts to progress from the 'Setup in Process' status. In the meantime, one of my apps has been approved and is now 'Pending Contract'.

    Something to note: I entered my taxpayer ID as '000000000', as suggested on other sites. Is this definitely correct? I've heared of quite a few people ringing up to obtain one, but this isn't required is it?

    How long do you think I can expect to wait for my free and/or paid contracts to come into effect?

    I used 000000000 as well, filled everything in yesterday around 6:30pm GMT, and by 6:00am today it was marked as complete, at that time I hadn't even printed off and signed the contract, it's in the post today.

    Not sure that helps you any, I guess it's luck of the draw who gets it and how quick it's done

    That's interesting. It seems that Apple deal with contracts in a very bizarre way. Are you in the UK too then? Have you sent the form off to Texas as well?

    It's a shame that there's no way of contacting the 'contracts team' via phone, because they seem awful at responding to emails.
