  1. To create an application you have to be logged in under your own account or create a new one on linkedin.com

  2. You can create a new application on the developers website.

    1. Select "My Apps" in the menu and click on the "Create Application" button on that page

  3. We recommend you to fill the Comment field with the information about the social network account. E.g. email or name of the person who was creating the application. We had a lot of cases when shop owners wanted to make some changes and found out that they don't remember which account owns the application, so they were forced to create a new one.
