Apple cuts commission for small businesses

Apple announced a good step to support small businesses, which is to reduce the commission to 15% instead of 30%, in order to increase companies' revenues, and this helps to grow their business and hire more developers. Apple said that any company that achieves less than $ 1 million in revenue from the software store is eligible for this program and in the event that it exceeds this amount at any time in the future, it will return to the traditional 30% commission. If there is a company that actually achieves more than one million dollars, and then in the future its revenues fall to less than 1 million, the commission will decrease to 15%. This step comes after many accusations by Apple that it does not support small companies and that its high commission harms companies, especially since there is no way to avoid it.
