Developer account renewal RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Windows Phone Developer account is expiring soon. I have a couple of questions:

    1) If I don't renew, will my apps still be available for download and use?

    2) Will I still be paid for apps that I have sold? Will I be paid for apps that are sold going forward?

    I tried using the forum search, google, bing, etc... and was unable to find an answer.

  • Hi there,

    If you don't renew within 30 days, your apps will be pulled from the store. Once this happens you will not be able to re-submit them again, so further updates will not be accessible to past users.

    Regarding the payout, we will issue a payment for all remaining proceeds at the end of next business quarter of when your account expired.
