So why basically hand Apple several thousand dollars of your own money? Because the top paid charts aren’t organized by the number of sales, but by the amount of money earned. So for a few thousand dollars, a developer can essentially buy a top spot on the App Store charts. A total transfer of $10,000 costs the developer $3,000 in fees, but that can take an app from obscurity to the top 20 list.
Breaking the system for the top spot.
