Windows 8 Windows Store details Microsoft has unveiled the Windows 8 Windows Store, where developers can sell apps.
Starting in February, devs can sell apps for a minimum $1.49 up to $1000.

Like other app stores Microsoft will take 30 percent revenue, but if your app is popular and brings over $25,000, the cut is reduced to 20 percent.

In-app transactions have the same split, if they use Microsoft's billing system.

Windows Store developer accounts cost $49.
