App Store cuts commissions to small and medium developers in half

For a long time, Apple will also charge 30% of the amount of paid applications, in-app purchases and even subscriptions on the App Store as a commission, which has been criticized by Facebook, Netflix, Microsoft, and even recently Epic Games. In the face of a certain accusation of making "extraordinary profits," Epic has to pursue legal proceedings with Apple.

Today, Apple announced the launch of the App Store Small Business Program. The App Store will begin on January 1, 2021, reducing commissions for small and medium-sized developers with an annual income of less than US$1 million from the original 30% to 15%, which also includes the first-year subscription service revenue. 15%.

As for those earning more than US$1 million, it remains at 30%.
