If your business plan includes selling your music, content or apps on iTunes, knowing how Apple structures its pricing is key to understanding your potential profit. Originally, Apple sold songs on iTunes at a single price of 99 cents. When it comes to apps, there is a good deal of flexibility on pricing. Developers also have the right to distribute their apps for free. Apple does not control any part of the pricing on third party apps but will control the distribution and billing. It also takes 30 percent of sales revenue. The process to submit your content to iTunes varies based on its type. For music, you must use a content distributor such as Tunecore or SongCast links in Resources. These services will take care of submitting your music to iTunes for a fee, which is charged yearly per single or album.
