How to change a paid app to free

I have a few apps which I guess have lived their life as paid ones. Now I want to change their license type to free but i cannot find any option to do it. Can anyone help?

Re: How to change a paid app to free

Under a recent upgrade to App World, developers can no longer change their app type.


In your case, you can create a new app that is "free". Current users would not be impacted.

Hi  tabarry,


You can also contact vendor support and we can change the application price for you.

Re: How to change a paid app to free

Yes. Under the new changes to the app world. You cannot change the cost. 

Instead of that, create a new app and make it free. But keep the same name, so users can still download it.

Glad to see there are still people who don't want to just earn money
