Amazon to Have Final Say in Pricing for their Android App Store

Written By Blog PageRank 2 on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 | 8:19 AM

Right here is some thing that may give developers thinking about the Amazon app retailer explanation for concern: according to Company Insider, content material makers can only recommend a retail price when submitting their applications, and Amazon will make the final decision on how considerably any specific app will price. While eventually it may turn out to be not such a huge deal (we count on Amazon to honor suggested pricing fairly closely), it will no doubt have a lot of second guessing the third-party app promoting answer.


Certainly, the most significant impact could be on the actual developer. Amazon has agreed to give 70 percent of revenue generated or 20 % of the recommended retail value, whichever is higher, back to the developer. This offers some protection in case Amazon decides to run a sale or promotion giving away an app for low cost or totally free, but if the retailer makes it habit of cutting app costs the 20 % deal no doubt will see smaller sized income than selling an app at its suggested value with a bigger percentage reduce for the developer.

We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out, but for now we stay cautious about Amazon’s venture into the world of apps.
