Apple Launches Lower App Store Fees for ‘Small Business’ Developers

Apple began receiving lower commissions from some of its App Store Small Business participants, according to AppleInsider. The tech giant launched the program in November, offering developers who earn less than $ 1 million a year a way to cut App Store fees in half. Instead of paying a 30 percent commission fee, participants will only have to pay 15 percent for in-app sales and purchases. The tech giant started accepting applicants in early December, and the program was due to start on January 1, 2021. It seems that Apple may have decided to start things earlier, at least for some developers.

Like AppleInsider noted, Apparent Software founder Jacob Gorban and a few other participants revealed that the program’s reduced rates are already in place. Gorban tweeted the information with a few screenshots:
