Recently I noticed that there is a change in tax(VAT?) payment when purchasing apps from BB App World. For example app that costs $1.99:
Before (two weeks ago):
So the tax is no more added to the price, but it is included in the app price. While this will benefit the users (paying less), I'm not sure how it will affect vendors.IMO two options so far:
1) Revenue share of 70% is calculated on the subtotal, i.e. we will receive 70% of $1.73 and not of $1.99
2) We still receive 70% of $1.99 but we need to handle VAT by ourselves, in my undestanding till now VAT issues were handled by Digital River.
I'm really confused about this change Any thoughts or ideas? Btw my PayPal account is Europe based, not sure how the payments look like for US/Non-European users.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've already filled a request in BB App World Vendor support form, no response yet. Probably it is worth to contact Digital River too.
I really hope, that I'm not right... otherwise it will mean a 15% cut off from all European sales and given that my European sales are like 60% of all my sales...

Good news! I got an official responce from RIM
Thank you for your email. This change does not affect the revenue share distrubuted to App World Vendors. You will receive 70% of the original purchase price indicated by yourself in the Vendor Portal.
What a relief
