Sales Summary

 

For any month with sales of your paid app (Android, Tizen wearables, and Theme) and in-app items (Android and Tizen wearable apps), you can review purchase amounts, canceled amounts, resulting revenue, estimated deductions, and your estimated earnings (in local currency and USD). You can also generate a sales summary spreadsheet.

Reported sales amount, cancellation, and revenue data are generated from actual purchases and cancellations that occurred during the selected month up to generation of the report. However after that, purchases may be canceled or settled after payment finalization. Cancellations result in no fees or earning accruing from purchases.

Reported fees and accounting amounts are estimated based on expected fees and average accounts receivable, which may differ from the actual fees and amounts that result when the purchases are settled.

Summaries also list the type of financial business agreement, determined by each country, that governs the relationship between you, Samsung, and third-party sale processing entities.

In summary rows, data is grouped by country and subgrouped by payment method. For each summary report row, you can review detailed sales data for each paid app and its in-app items. Detailed data is grouped by country and subgrouped by the type of purchase (paid app or in-app items). 

Note: Your earnings equal your sales revenue amounts minus applicable deductions (for example, European Union VAT, Samsung and Payment Gateway commissions, and other fees and taxes).

This section does not contain all information about sales summary reports. For more details, see the Samsung Seller Office Terms and Conditions.

Business Type

Kind of business arrangement among you, Samsung, and supporting third-party entities, which includes the following differences:

Agent - You sell your apps and in-app items to your customers. You are responsible for reporting and paying Value Added Tax (VAT).

Commissionaire - Samsung buys your apps and in-app items from you. Samsung sells them to customers. Samsung reports and pays the E VAT, which is deducted from your earnings.

In countries with Commissionaire business agreements, the adjusted amounts do not include taxes, which you are responsible for paying. In all other countries, adjusted amounts do include taxes.
 

Country Distribution country with one or more paid app and/or in-app item purchases
 

Payment Method

How the customers paid for the purchases

Supported payment methods include: credit card, premium SMS, carrier billing, Micropayment, PayPal®, cyber cash, Qiwi (Russia only), WebMoney (Japan only), and pre-paid card (China only). 
 

Sales Amount

Total amount of all paid app and in-app item prices for purchases authorized by customers

Note: Customers and other entities can later stop purchase payment.
 

Canceled Total amount of all purchases stopped by the customer or other entities, and reductions to purchase sale amounts due to refunds, bad debts, and other causes
 
Sales Revenue 'Sales Amount' value minus the 'Canceled' value
 

Fees

Estimated total of applicable Samsung commission, promotion fees, processing charges, and taxes

The Samsung commission includes a local revenue share and service charge. Promotion fees apply when a paid app is downloaded for free using a discount coupon. Processing charges can include a Payment Gateway commission, and when a discount is applied. Taxes can include the VAT of a country.

Actual total that results when the purchases are settled may differ from the estimated total.
 

Accounting Amount

Your estimated earnings in the local currency from all purchases that were not canceled 

Estimated earnings = Sales Amount - Canceled - Estimated Fees

Actual earnings that result when the purchases are settled may be different from the estimated earnings. Your estimated earnings do not include VAT initially paid by Samsung but then paid by you during settlement.

Depending on the applied tax rate of a country and the fee levied by a phone carrier, you may generate lower net income from phone bill payments than from credit card payments. It may take up to six months for some phone carriers to conclude phone bill settlements.
 

Accounting Amount (USD)

Your estimated earnings in U.S. dollars

Actual earnings that result when the purchases are settled may be different from the estimated earnings.

For the accounting amount of each individual sale, its USD equivalent is based on the exchange rate at the time of the sale. Account Amount (USD) is the total of the individual USD equivalents.
