Windows Store – do it your way
If you're selling your apps through Windows Store, Microsoft allows you to use 3rd party commerce engines to monetize your apps more effectively. Lotaris in-appCommerce gives Windows developers a better deal because it:
- Supports a broader range of business models (including subscriptions)
- Provides direct access to your customers
- Provides detailed analytics and reporting
- All these and more, at a significantly lower revenue share than that of Microsoft.
