Apple creste din nou preturile aplicatiilor

App Store heroIn cursul noptii trecute compania Apple a inceput sa isi notifice dezvoltatorii de aplicatii pentru platforma iOS in legatura cu o modificare de preturi pe care intentioneaza sa o faca in perioada urmatoare in anumite tari de pe glob.

Mai exact, compania Apple si-a anuntat dezvoltatorii ca in urmatoarele 36 de ore urmeaza sa creasca preturile aplicatiilor vandute in Mexic, Coreea de Sud, Africa de Sud si Turcia, dezvoltatorii urmand a avea noi optiuni de preturi din care vor putea alege pentru a-si vinde titlurile in magazinul virtual.

Pentru Coreea de Sud Apple va adauga un TVA de 10% pentru achizitii, in timp ce in Africa de Sud dezvoltatorii vor trebui sa isi plateasca singuri TVA-ul pentru titluri, iar in trei dintre cele patru tari utilizatorii vor trebui sa isi innoiasca inclusiv abonamentele din aplicatii.

Apple a crescut la inceputul acestui an preturile aplicatiilor vandute in lumea intreaga si se pare ca nu a fost multumita de aceasta schimbare, asa ca acum incearca sa obtina mai multi bani de la dezvoltatorii de la utilizatorii care ii folosesc iDevice-urile.

Hi [Developer],

We sometimes need to update prices on the App Store whenever taxes or foreign exchange rates change. Within the next 36 hours, prices will increase in the following App Store territories:

  • Mexico
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Turkey

Purchases on the South Korean App Store now include a value-added tax (VAT) of 10 percent. If you’re a developer based outside of South Korea, we’ll pay the VAT that we’ll be collecting for you. If you’re a developer based in South Korea, you’re still responsible for paying the VAT.

Because of the price increases, customers with auto-renewable subscriptions on the South African, South Korean, and Turkish App Store will need to resubscribe. However, although the prices are also changing for subscriptions on the Mexican App Store, we won’t interrupt those.

We’ll send an email to your subscribers in these territories shortly before their subscription renews to let them know that the price of their existing subscription will increase. The email also has a link that will let customers resubscribe, or in Mexico, turn their subscription off.

In addition, we’re also adding two new low-price tiers, Alternate Tier A and Alternate Tier B, for the Indian, Indonesian, Mexican, Russian, South African, and Turkish App Store. We’ll update prices for existing apps and In-App Purchases that already use the Alternate Tier A and Alternate Tier B price tiers on the Chinese App Store.

You’ll be able to review the new prices in the updated price-tier matrix in Rights and Pricing in My Apps within the next 36 hours.

Have any questions? Get in touch.

The App Store team
