Apple recently announced the App Store Small Business Program, whose goal is to reduce Apple's commission of App Store sales for small businesses from 30% to 15%.
Generally speaking, developers who earn less than $1 million in App Store revenue per year can apply. You can read more about the program here.
The reduced rate will affect the data in Apphud's analytics as well as the integration events we send to you. So, it's crucial to let us know about membership in the Small Business Program in your iOS app settings.
To apply for the App Store Small Business Program, browse to the Apple Developer website. To enroll, you’ll need to be the Account Holder in the Apple Developer Program, review and accept the latest Paid Apps agreement posted December 2020 in App Store Connect, and if applicable, list all of your Associated Developer Accounts.
After you've read the terms of the program, click Enroll now. Apple will request a sign-in to your Apple Developer account, and will automatically fill in information like your name, email, and Team ID.
Once you enroll, you will receive an email confirming that your registration is being reviewed.
To acknowledge Apphud about your participation in the program select an Entry date in the app's settings.
Since a developer could have multiple apps from different companies in their Apphud account, the Small Business Program membership status is set on a per-app basis.
Review your iOS app settings in the Apphud's Settings and you will find the Apple Small Business Program section at the bottom of the page.
If you left the program, you must put an exit date to your iOS app settings as soon as possible, otherwise, we will continue calculating your sales with the reduced commission.
