Apple cuts App Store Affiliate Program commission from 7% to 2.5%

apple

Apple is reducing its App Store commission from the standard 7% to just 2.5% effective from 1. May. Members of the App Store Affiliate program were alerted of the 64% cut by email.

The Affiliate program provides a little kickback for App Store downloads that are made via a referral ID link. Though it doesn’t seem like much, commissions can quickly build up the larger a developer’s audience becomes. Developers will continue to receive 70% of the sale.
