Small business developers can now receive AWS credits


In December 2021, we launched the first phase of the Amazon Appstore Small Business Accelerator Program, which introduced increased revenue share for eligible developers. Today, we’re excited to announce the second phase of the program. As of November 18th, developers with revenue less than 1 million USD in the previous calendar year are now eligible to receive AWS promotional credits equivalent to 10 percent of revenue.

To receive AWS credits, developers need to enter their AWS Account ID in the Developer Console. Developers not using AWS can sign up for free and unlock the benefits of building on the cloud.

  • Developers in all marketplaces who earned less than 1 million USD in the prior calendar year and developers new to Amazon Appstore are eligible.
  • If an eligible developer earns 1 million USD or more in the current year, they will revert to the standard royalty rates and benefits.
  • If a developer’s revenue falls below 1 million USD in a future year, the developer will be eligible in the next calendar year.

The first phase of the program, which includes the higher revenue share adjustment, began on December 22, 2021.

The AWS credit program begins on December 1, 2022. You will receive promotional credits approximately 15 days after the end of the calendar month in which the applicable sale takes place.
