Ask MagCloud: Digital Distribution
Why do I earn a lower percentage for sales of my digital publication in the iPad app than for sales on MagCloud.com?
While there are a lot of benefits to distributing on the iPad there are also additional transaction fees required for In-App Purchase. As a result, your share of digital sales made via In-App-Purchase is 50% of the iPad selling price. Publishers continue to keep 70% of digital sales made through the MagCloud website.
You can see how your earnings will differ for sales on the website and in the iPad app using our digital pricing calculator.
