Apple Allows Developers to Sign Up for Reduced 15% App Store Cut

Last month, Apple announced its new App Store Small Business Program for developers, reducing App Store commission to 15% for small businesses, and today, the company has opened enrolment in its new program, allowing eligible developers to sign up.

Apple typically takes 30% of all App Store revenue on digital items as per its longstanding policy. Under its new program, however, developers making under $1 million per year in App Store sales and in-app purchase revenue are eligible for the reduced commission rate of 15% for the following year.

Here’s the official announcement from Apple:

Enrollment is now open for the new App Store Small Business Program, designed to accelerate innovation and help propel your small business forward. Featuring a reduced commission rate of 15% on paid apps and in-app purchases, this program helps you invest more resources into your business so you can continue building great apps.

The vast majority of developers on the App Store who sell digital goods and services are eligible — simply complete a short enrollment form.
