Apple informed developers yesterday about planned price increases in the App Store in selected countries. Poland was also on the list.
In the brief, laconic information provided by Apple, no official reasons for the price increase were given (it was only mentioned that the changes in the local tax law were responsible for the increase in Vietnam). However, it probably results from the exchange rate of local currencies against the dollar. In addition to Poland, increases will also be introduced in Chile, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, South Korea, Sweden, Vietnam and all euro area countries.
It is worth recalling that developers selling in the App Store cannot set any prices for products, but must choose from the price thresholds set by Apple, and they will be increased. According to the new price list (which you can see in full here) the two lowest acceptable prices in the Polish App Store, PLN 1.99 and PLN 2.99, will remain unchanged, however, subsequent price thresholds will be raised. Interestingly, the price increase will not be even. For example – applications currently costing PLN 42.99 (9th price threshold) will become more expensive to PLN 49.99, i.e. by about 16%, but applications currently costing PLN 79.99 (17th price threshold) will become more expensive to PLN 99.99, i.e. by about 16% about 25%.
The new prices are to be introduced in the App Store no earlier than October 5. The changes will apply to both the applications and the micropayments available in them. An exception will be auto-renewing subscriptions purchased prior to the increase, where developers will not be able to increase prices.
