It’s a week into May and it seems that iTunes Affiliates are breathing a sigh of relief.

Apple originally announced on April 24 that commission rates for apps and in-app purchases would drop from 7 percent to 2.5 percent. That means that partners will only get 2.5 percent of each purchase generated through an iTunes or App Store link they promote on their mediums.

Well, affiliates have been checking their account dashboards this past week and have found that iOS and Mac apps were still generating at the old 7 percent rate.

Indeed, Mac Gamer HQ decided to contact Apple for clarification and received a response back. Apparently, “the correct new app commission levels” only drop the in-app commission rate for both Mac and iOS apps down to 2.5 percent. App commissions stay at 7 percent.

Apple noted this change on Friday with a post on its Affiliate Program page as a clarification of its pre-change announcement.
