Something about OpenFeint: OpenFeint will take out five percent sale ????/

Q: How does iPurchase work and what percentage of sales does OpenFeint take?
A: iPurchase works as an affiliate program for Apple. Apple takes thirty percent of a sale and from that thirty percent OpenFeint will take out five percent.


so OpenFeint have a cooperation with Apple, and OpenFeint will take 5% and apple take 25 % from a sale?

Yes I believe that is correct, because OpenFeint is playing a part in generating sales for Apple they are rewarded with a portion of Apples cut. It doesn't change the amount the developer receives from Apple so I don't see any cause for alarm

No, anyone can get the 5%. You just have to sign up with Apple to get approved to do it. Tons of sites get the 5% cut.

Thanks!! No we haven't committed to any one in particular just yet, though we have done a lot of research into them all. And we haven't decided which one, if any, to use for Rune Mage.
