Apple announced today that reduces the App Store commission to 15 percent for apps with less than 1 million revenue. Apple claims that the new App Store Small Business program will benefit the majority of developers who sell digital goods and services in the store.
The company said developers could join the program if they had revenue of up to $ 1 million in the previous calendar year. The new program will start on January 1, 2021.
- Existing developers who made up to $ 1 million in 2020 for all of their applications, as well as new developers in the App Store, are eligible for the program and reduced commission.
- If a participating developer exceeds the $ 1 million limit, the normal commission will apply for the rest of the year.
- If a developer's business falls below the $ 1 million threshold in a future calendar year, it will qualify for its 15 percent commission next year.
Developers with more than $ 1 million in revenue should continue to pay the standard 30% commission rate on the App Store
