The mobile application industry continues to grow day by day. Many application developers, large and small, make money by downloading their applications to the markets on smart phones. However, the developers complain about one issue… Apple App Store and Google Play Store App stores like, get a 30 percent share of the earnings of each published app. While the commission paid offends large companies, it particularly affects small companies badly. This situation is eventually changing.
Google to reduce Play Store commissions
Google, Play Store is preparing to significantly reduce the commissions on it. ABD’li The tech giant will have less than the first million dollars each studio earns, regardless of size. Developers for the first million dollars they earn each year 30 percent instead 15 percent will pay the commission. When this amount is exceeded, the commission will be paid again. 30 percent it will be. The new regulation will take effect from 1 July.
Play Store manager Sameer Samat, made a statement on the subject. Same, “Per year two million dollar, five million dollar even ten million We have partners who earn dollars. However, despite this, we heard that these companies are still trying to be self-sufficient. For this reason, every developer using the Play billing system will be will pay less commission. ” said.
A similar move was recently Apple had come from the front. The company, which had problems with Spotify and Fortnite, became the agenda with its high shares. Even Apple, He even went to court for unfair competition and abuse of position. Concerned about the involvement of small studios, the company announced its small business program. So that App Store ‘and Every company earning under a million dollars was eligible to pay less commission. Google’s on the contrary, Apple only gave this opportunity to apps with low annual earnings. However, this step taken for small developers is not enough to solve the company’s problems. The lawsuits are still ongoing and the company is unlikely to be penalized.
Both the developer and the publisher will benefit from this step. Google and Apple While companies like companies will escape from the monopoly case, application developers will have a sigh of relief. 15 percent still quite a high number. However, considering the services and costs of the stores, it seems fair.
