We reported yesterday that qualified developers have been notified by Apple of the App Store small business program that will be launched soon. 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 pledge to reduce the App Store’s 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 who earn up to $ 1 million a year on the App Store are eligible for this new program, while leading developers will continue to pay Apple a 30% commission. As the developers said 9to5Mac, they’re already seeing changes in revenue reports on the App Store Connect. The change was expected to take effect on January 1, 2021.
Developer Aditya Rajveer, of Marvis App, noted that $ 5.09 is now being paid for an application that costs $ 5.99 – which is now in line with the lower 15% commission. David Hodge also shared a similar report with us today, so it looks like Apple decided to launch the new lower App Store commission a few days ahead of schedule.
