What you need to know
- Apple is now accepting applications to the App Store Small Business Program.
The program allows developers earning less than $1 million per year to enjoy a reduction on App Store fees – they will pay Apple 15% rather than the standard 30% that has been in place since the App Store began.
Apple also points out that developers must provide details for all of their developer accounts to allow it to confirm they are eligible for the reduction in rates, however.
Anyone wanting to join the App Store Small Business Program must apply by 10 a.m. PST on December 18 for the new rates to come into action by the new year.
