Paid Theme App Pricing and Payment

Learn how paid Theme app prices are set in app registration and determined at the time of purchase transaction, and how users can pay for paid Theme apps

For paid Theme apps, the purchasing user pays the country-specific price at the time of the transaction, displayed in the local currency, to download the Theme app from the Theme Store.

How Theme App Price Is Set

The setting of factors that influence Theme app price during app registration and the setting of the user country-specific price at the time of purchase are governed by the following:

  • The Seller Office account holder sets the standard US dollar (USD) price.
  • Each day's rate of exchange for each distribution country is applied to the standard USD price in order to produce the default country-specific price.
  • The Seller Office account holder can set another country-specific price at any time.
  • When the country-specific price is below the country minimum price, the country-specific price is automatically changed to the country's minimum price.
  • Carrier tier prices are set for each country and each carrier.
  • Each country can set a minimum price, minimum price increments, minimum price unit, and maximum phone bill payment price. 
    • When phone bill payment is applied to a distribution country:
      • When the current country-specific price does not match a carrier tier price:
        • When only one carrier is available or when more than one carrier is available and all carriers have the same tier prices, the country-specific price is changed to the nearest available carrier tier price.
        • When more than one carrier is available and the carriers have different tier prices, the country-specific price is changed to the highest price in the price tier.
      • The Seller Office account holder can select any available carrier tier price, which becomes the country-specific price.
      • When the country-specific price exceeds the maximum phone bill payment price, the country-specific price is lowered based on the limit.
      • The maximum limit on phone bill payment will be affected.
  • When a commercially distributed theme is automatically distributed to a new country because SAMSUNG Galaxy Apps becomes available in more countries… was checkmarked, the standard USD price or the country minimum price (when higher) will determine the initial country‑specific price of the theme.
  • When phone bill payment is selected, the displayed country-specific price will be changed when conditions apply.
