This list of FAQs pertain to organization accounts in PyPI.
Can anyone create an organization account?

How do I access an organization account?

How do you confirm a user is from a specific organization?
We ensure the domain name of the email address matches the organization URL provided when creating the account. We may follow up with more questions to confirm the affiliation.
Why does an admin approve the organization account request?
The PyPI admin has to approve the organization account request to ensure everyone is billed fairly. We ensure commercial projects pay for the feature and community projects can access the account free of charge.
The PyPI admin also arbitrates any conflict with account names when multiple projects have requested the same account name.
How many days does it take for the admin to approve the organization account request?
We are unable to specify a timeline by which the PyPI admin will approve the organization account request. As resources are limited and there is no dedicated user support for organization accounts, the PyPI admin will review all organization account requests periodically.
Who ensures that the organization account request is from a private organization or a community project?
The PyPI admin will ensure that the private organizations are billed and community projects can access the features free of cost.
What happens if an organization account is deleted?
Before an account is deleted, the owner will have to transfer all projects owned by the organization to another organization or user. This ensures that the project history is maintained. Once the account is deleted, the team permissions will be deleted.
Individual project permissions assigned to users will exist after the deletion.
Does the PyPI admin have to approve deletion of an organization account?
No, the PyPI admin is not involved in the deletion of an organization account.
