Google wants more money from app sales

You know the revenue sharing in the App Store. 70% of the proceeds will go to the developer and 30% to the App Store Owners. Is in almost all stores and so in my eyes also pretty fair. But what many do not know for sure that Google (pay for apps via their mobile phone bill) pushes off a whopping 25% of the operators at the carrier-billing. Thus, only 5% remain for Google itself

This is too much now apparently Google thinks and wants more abhaben of win. In Korea, is already trying to get more, 15% are in the conversation. This means that of the 30% that Google retains at least half remains with the Group itself. Even outside Korea this should be enforced. What does this mean in numbers? Eugene Young and Ben Schachter have recalculated and came to the following conclusion.

Schachter goes from one app sales heights of $ 350 million in May, and it relies on figures from Distimo. This means that $ 17.5 million will go to Google, if you take the remaining 5% to the hand. With the new model, so the 15% it would be $ 52,500,000. On an annual basis, Google could, if negotiations with the network operators are successful, enter 2014 approximately $ 500 million.

$ 500 million is not much for Google. But considering that by Android itself made ​​no direct profits, it’s something. However, nice to see is that Google does not attack the developers to achieve more profits from the Play. It would certainly be the easier way, more gratifying that this is not taken.
