We reported yesterday that eligible developers were notified by Apple of the upcoming launch of the App Store Small Business program. According to some developers, Apple is already charging a lower commission on App Store sales.
The App Store Small Business program was announced last month as a promise to reduce the App Store commission rate from 30% to 15%. This percentage is charged to developers for each sale made through the App Store or in-app purchase.
Developers earning up to $ 1 million a year from the App Store can benefit from this new program, while leading developers will continue to pay Apple a 30% commission. As the developers said 9to5Mac, are already seeing changes in revenue reports on App Store Connect. The change was supposed to be published on January 1, 2021.
Marvis App developer Aditya Rajveer noted that they are now paid $ 5.09 for an app that costs $ 5.99, which is now compliant with the 15% lower fee. David Hodge also shared a similar report with us today, so it looks like Apple decided to roll out the new lower App Store fee a few days ahead of schedule.
