What is the transfer process like?
Apptopia’s transfer process is broken into 4 parts:
1. Upload Code
If you did not upload your code to prepare for a sale before accepting the offer, now is the time to upload all necessary files. You also will enter your PayPal email address that the payments will be sent to.
2. Initial Payment
The buyer pays the initial 50% of the agreed price via PayPal to the seller. The Apptopia commission is taken out of this portion of payment.
3. Apptopia’s App Transfer Process
You initiate the transfer of the app from your developer account to the buyer’s using their developer information. The buyer then accepts the apps into their account.
4. Final Payment
The buyer completes the remaining 50% of the payment owed via PayPal which is sent to the address you provided in step 1. Once they complete the payment, they have access to their newly acquired code and all the assets and files you provided in the Upload Code step.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have an app for both platforms (iOS and Android), you are obligated to sell the IP to both when creating a listing. If you feel it is fair, and it often is, you can price your bundle higher to include both.
Similar to having one app across multiple platforms, if you’re selling the free version of an app and you also have a paid version associated with it, you are obligated to sell both in the bundle as well.
It would not make sense to keep these separate after the sale because of their similar programming. When selling an app you are selling the brand as a whole.
Documentation is not required, but highly preferred. Some buyers won't even touch apps that aren't well documented.
Thorough documentation leads to higher pricing as well as repeat customers. We have seen this occur with customers in the past. It’s especially helpful when there is a buyer who may not fully understand the coding, but again it is up to the developer.
Altering the price of an app and changing information about your listing is something you can now do manually.
To add an external account, simply register your Username and Password on Apptopia and go to 'Connections' where you can sync your iTunes Connect and/or Android Developer console account. By clicking on “Add New,” you’ll be able to follow the directions and link your account(s) effortlessly.
This might take a few minutes, in some rarer cases, an hour or so.
