I always wondered how this worked, since apple doesn't really work to respond to your FAAD promotions in mind.
Hope you get that sorted out!

When doing a FAAD promotion, do you maybe have to schedule the price drop in iTC in advance, so the price change automatically kicks in at midnight for every territory in their local time?

Yes you do. On the occasions we've tried this kind of thing, I've always put the app to free the previous day, UK time, to allow plenty of time for the App Store to update around the world. However I make the change manually and set it to change NOW rather than using the date change mechanism, which doesn't always update straight away.

Hello,

I've tried contacting FAAD and I got a company that said they charge $10,000 and $15,000 for their service. Is this correct, or are there other plans. I would appreciate a reply. I'm new to this and was thinking of using them but at $10000 I can't afford that.

Hoping to hear back. Thank you in advance and good luck with your app.

If the reply you got back is from ICS Mobile, then that's the company that runs FAAD.

Their rates do seem to vary greatly based on whether you're wanting them to promote a paid title with a price drop or an already free title with in-app purchases.
