Apple shares positive reactions from developers over App Store commission cut
Apple announced last week that it will soon half the commission it takes from developers for paid app purchases, in-app purchases, and subscription fees, reducing its 30 percent cut to 15 percent as part of its new App Store Small Business Program.
Now Apple is highlighting the reactions from the developer community over the news, sharing positive feedback from developers who will benefit from the program, which applies to those who earn less than $1 million from the App Store.
In a press release shared online Apple says: “Since Apple announced its new App Store Small Business Program, developers are sharing their positive reactions to the news. Under the new program, which launches January 1, 2021, the vast majority of developers who sell digital goods and services on the App Store can qualify for a reduced 15 percent commission. From focusing on their apps full time, to growing their teams, experimenting with features, and even launching new apps, developers are ready to write the next chapter of innovation and creativity on the App Store.”
The post then shows comments from several developers, including Matt Hutton, founder and creative director of Little 10 Robot, Dan Kurani, co-founder and CEO of Foundermark, Inc., and Jacob Eiting, CEO of RevenueCat.
“This is wonderful news! This will help us acquire more and better content to expand our service,” says Daphna Zinman, founder and CEO of Cinémoi North America, LLC. “I’m very excited to use these funds for development and other projects like our new Mac app,” said Swupnil Sahai, co-founder of SwingVision.
