Amazon's Revenue Share Policy

Amazon takes a 20% cut of the subscription revenue for apps with In App Products in the Movies and TV category and 30% of revenue for apps in other categories. Vimeo will attempt to sort your app into the most appropriate category but Amazon may enforce certain categorizations based on their own criteria. You can read more details about Amazon's revenue share policy under the Royalty section of their Developer Services Agreement or review information here about app store revenue share across all of the platforms we support.
