Question regarding the release form and DLC.
Getting near releasing a game on steam that is free but has a 2 euro DLC.
In the "Notification of UE4 Project Release Form" they ask "Will your product contain In-App Purchases?*"
Is steam DLC concidered an in-app purchase and if not do I have to make another release form for the cosmetic DLC?
Lastly does the 5% royalty fee apply if I get less than 3000 dollars quarterly? I've seen conflicting statements.
Thanks a lot for you answers beforehand.

You only need to fill out one release form for each individual game you create and sale in UE4. A separate release form is not needed for each individual DLC within one game.
For royalty calculation, you would add all in-app sales for the given quarter, for each game you are selling. For example, if you have one game with 5 different DLC's within that game, you would add the revenue from all 5 DLC's to determine total gross revenue for the quarter.
If you're total gross sales for an individual game, including all DLC sales within that game, is less than $3,000 in a quarter, no royalty is due. Royalty is only calculated on gross sales over $3,000 in any given quarter.
