    Hi,

    got a question about in-app purchase and how the cost splitting work? I am wondering about the books apps.

    Say I got the book from the publisher for $19.99 and then they sell it in the ibookstore for $24.99

    Now, my question. How does Apple do the maths? Do they take 30% of my margin of $4.99 or 30% of all $24.99 ?

    Greets,

    Apple don't know about or care about your margin.

    Show me Amazon using in-app purchasing via the app store. The Kindle app re-directs you to the Amazon on-line store using the browser for purchasing books.
