Hi Folks – I have a question.


I’m developing a SaaS product. Part of my offering is that my customers will be able to download my app from both the Google Play and Apple App stores, for free. They’re paying for the service through my website. Their customers will also be able to download the app from both app stores (for free) and they’ll be able to chat with my customer through the app and select and pay for certain services offered by my customers. I plan to have these payments routed through Stripe.


Can someone explain what costs are involved here for my company, as it relates to having this app on the app stores? I’m struggling to figure out what Google and Apple will charge me.


Thanks in advance. JP
