Back in March 2021, Google announced that it will soon halve Play Store commissions to 15% for developers earning less than $1 million in yearly revenue. This is similar to the pattern that Apple announced in November 2020. Today, Google has started notifying developers that they can begin enrolling the reduced commission tier, which will formally kick off on July 1.
In emails that are being sent out on a rolling basis to developers who publish apps on the Play Store, Google highlights that:
Enroll now for the 15% service fee: Starting July 1st, the service fee will be 15% instead of 30% for your first $1M (USD) of earnings each year. To make sure you are eligible for the 15% service fee tier, you’ll need to create an Account group in Google Play Console. The Account Group page is open now, so head to Play Console to enroll.
