    Hi Carter,
    Happy New Year!
    Thanks for the great info and insight to the app biz! I am a newbie to the app development world, I currently have my first app in development, which should be completed this month..I hope 🙂

    Question, in regards to revenue generating, is it appropriate or possible to charge an in-app service/usage fee on top of third party processing fees when one user pays another user through the app?

    I appreciate your input,

    In regards to your question, I don’t completely understand what you’re trying to do. Can you provide a more specific example?
