Previously, it was 30%.
Google plans to reduce the commission for all app developers from 30% to 15% from July 2021. However, as noted, the reduced percentage will apply only to the first $1 million earned for the year.
“Starting July 1, 2021, we will reduce the service fee that Google Play receives when a developer sells their digital goods or services to 15% on the first $1 million in revenue that each developer receives annually. Thanks to this change, 99% of developers worldwide who sell digital goods and services using Google Play will see a 50% reduction in commissions,” the company said in a statement posted on its official blog on Tuesday.
In November 2020, Apple took a similar step, announcing a 15% commission reduction for small app developers. The amount is deducted from sales in the online App Store.
