Applying and Managing App and Product Discounts

For your commercial (paid) apps and products that are being distributed, you can set one or more price discounts for your customers to download your app. You can set a percentage discount to your app's base price and specify which distribution countries the discount applies to. You can also set a reduced country-specific price for any of your distribution countries. For each distribution country where users can pay by phone bill, you can choose whether or not to apply a discount to the phone bill price. For all types of discounts, you specify the time period that a discount applies.
