Apple’s 30% App Store Fee on Refunds

Johannes Erschbamer:

Nice, Apple now subtracts only the developer proceeds on refunds. Previously this included Apple’s cut, which meant a loss on every refund!

Johannes Erschbamer:

Previously I made a small loss on every refund. The one from yesterday was exactly the amount I got before.

It sounds like Apple still reserves the right to keep all of its fee, but that it is no longer actually doing so. In 2009, Rene Ritchie was unable to find any cases where Apple wasn’t eating the fee. But I’ve definitely heard of developers saying that they’ve had to pay it.

Late to comment on this, but jeebus.

I thought I was at least vaguely aware of the biggest AppStoreMonster outrages, but the previous policy is something I was both unaware of, and something I couldn't have even dreamed would be true.
