Distribution and monetization in the Windows Store
Windows Store apps sell in more than 200 markets, with support for local currencies in over 120 markets, and developers can localize their apps in more than 100 languages. Windows Store also offers full platform support for free apps, trials (time-based and feature-based) and paid apps, including in-app purchase. The revenue share base is 70%, but when an app achieves $25,000 USD in revenue—aggregated across all sales in every market—that app moves to 80% revenue share for the lifetime of that app.
