Last month Apple announced a steep reduction in fees it pays as commissions to affiliate links. Essentially if you drive a sale to Apple, you'll get a cut of that sale. Apple has reportedly adjusted the fee structure again to limit the cut to in-app sales.
Apple has changed its mind on commission rates for iTunes affiliates. It was previously reported that all rates (for Mac and iOS app purchases, and for in-app purchases on both operating systems) would be cut from 7 percent to 2.5 percent. But the iPhone-maker now says only in-app iOS purchases will have their commission rate reduced to 2.5 percent.
