[Software] Microsoft Store commissions will be reduced from 30 to 12%


Recommended Posts

Microsoft has modified the commission policy of its digital platform for applications and video games for PC, Microsoft Store, which previously obtained 30 percent of all payments but will now reduce this rate to 12 percent.


   Starting next August 1, developers of apps and video games for PC will obtain 88 percent of the sales carried out in the Microsoft Store, while the rest will go to the American company. 




This represents a reduction compared to the current commissions, which are 30 percent, and are due to the "commitment to empower each PC game creator to achieve more", as Microsoft has assured through a statement.


   This measure comes after both Apple and Google decided to lower the commissions of the App Store and Google Play, respectively, which went from 30 to 15 percent for the first million dollars of collection of the apps, although above this figure, the rate is again 30 percent.


   In the case of the Microsoft Store, commissions are the same regardless of billing, so they will remain at 12 percent regardless of income level.
