Every once in a while, depending on certain circumstances, Apple adjusts prices for apps in its App Store across the globe. Today marks another change for a handful of areas.
Today, Apple updated developers on some key tax and price changes impacting the App Store in certain areas. Specifically, in Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Germany, and the Republic of Korea (South Korea). Apple notes that the changes are, as always, due to changes in foreign exchange rates.
Apple tells developers that, over the next few days, proceeds will change based on the alterations to taxes and prices the company has had to make.
For the following areas just below, the adjusted proceeds will be calculated based on “the tax-exclusive price”:
Cameroon: New value-added tax of 19.25%
Zimbabwe: New value-added tax of 14.5%
And Apple notes that prices will change in the below regions as well:
Germany: Value-added tax rate reversion to 19% after temporary decrease to 16%. Prices on the App Store will not change.
Republic of Korea: Prices of alternative tiers for apps and in-app purchases (excluding auto-renewable subscriptions) will be adjusted to allow for additional locally relevant pricing conventions.
These changes will begin rolling out soon.
