    Need several Apps?

    Have we got the deal for you: the Success fee.
    The perfect, scalable, pricing scheme for multiple App owners.

    What is it?

    Its quite simple, really.

    Sometimes you need more than one App to handle all your content, and paying $575-$1000 usd a month per App is not an option.

    That's why we've created the Success fee. We offer you unlimited Apps for a single license payment in exchange for one thing: If any of your Apps’ editions reaches more than 1,000 downloads at any point, we ask for a commission.

    Commission you say? How much are we talking about?

    We charge this commission only once a year, regardless of how many times that App reaches the 1,000 download mark on any of its editions. That's right – for each successful App, it's a non-cumulative flat rate paid once a year.
