Oh that's even better news. So I get 70% or 0%?. I can confirm that I have received nothing, 0%, zilch. My app has been selling since January 2017 50-100 units each month. Nothing makes sense.

Hi, if you have received nothing or 0%, your app would be a free app. If your app is NOT a free app during the period you were expecting to receive royalties, please file a Contact US, so we can investigate further. Thanks!
