£75 developer licencse fee. RRS feed

  • Question

  • After 6 months of selling apps on the Windows store I have made 68p.

    Is there a way to get a free developer license as it seems silly to spend £75 to get 68p back !

    I only have a couple of apps in the Windows store and neither sell for much but do add to the Windows store library of programs.

  • I would recommend to start using ads, maybe you will make some money with it....

    Sometimes there are offers from MS to get a cheaper dev license (one was $45 for Win8 and $8 for WP8 a while ago).

  • It just seems a shame that in 6 months I wont renew my license as there is no profit in it for me.

    That will mean 2 apps will no longer be available in the store.

    And that's just me, I am pretty sure others are in the same boat.

  • See if you qualify for BizSpark they have a free token,  or if you have MSDN subscription with a free token, you could renew your license with a token.
