Application Pricing

For paid Android and Gear apps distributed through the Samsung Galaxy Apps store and for paid Theme apps distributed through the Samsung Themes Store, end-users pay the country-specific price at the time of the transaction, displayed in the local currency, in order to download the app.

The country-specific price is governed by the following:

  • The Seller Office account holder sets the standard USD price (United States of America dollars).
  • 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/or maximum phone bill payment price.
    • For distribution in South Korea, the minimum price is 310 won, and the minimum increment is 10 won.
  • 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 paid app is automatically distributed to a new country because SAMSUNG Galaxy Apps becomes available in more countries… was checked, the standard USD price or the country minimum price (when higher) will determine the initial country‑specific price of the app.
  • When phone bill payment is selected, the displayed country-specific price will be automatically changed to the nearest available carrier price that is not greater than the initial country-specific price.  Other carrier prices can be selected.
