Hello, Concerning the recent blog post on Bulk App Distribution:
https://developer.amazon.com/post/Tx1FZ1NVQHKUHN/Manage-Bulk-App-Distribution-with-Whispercast-for-Kindle# I didn't see any discussion of pricing. How does Amazon charge these institutional users for paid apps? For instance, if a school librarian decides to download a 99 cent brain teaser to 10 Kindles, will that result in 10 app sales for us developers? If a 2nd grade classroom teacher decides to download a 1.99 reading comprehension app to 25 Kindles, will that show up as 25 app sales? Also, will institutional users be served mobile ad's the same as regular consumer/retail sales? Finally, is there any way developers can track their Whispercast Site/Institutional sales uniquely from regular consumer/retail sales in the Developer Portal? Thank you.
Hi Allan, Whispercast requires every managed device to have its own unique
Amazon.com user account. This means that the Whispercast admin of an organization must buy content for each user account they wish to send it to. For example, if they want to send a $1 app to 6 of their devices, they will be charged $6. Hope this information helps.
