Viveport, the HTC storefront for SteamVR headsets, is giving developers 100% of revenue from that storefront until the end of the year.

This is the third time that Viveport have offered this deal to developers. Like most businesses, the last two months of the year are the busiest and the most profitable, a lot of developers rely on the holiday rush to maintain profitability and stay afloat.

In a blog post about the offer, Viveport says that it is aimed at new and existing developers. That means that anyone, even developers signing up for the first time, can access it. All they have to do is follow the steps below:

New Viveport Developers:

1.       Log in to the Developer Console

2.       On the default “My Titles” page, select “Add New Title” and upload the required files and details for your content

3.       When you see the ‘Program Opt-ins’ step, make sure you have opted in to at least one of the Viveport programs

Existing Viveport Developers:

1.       Log in to the Developer Console

2.       Select your VR title

3.       On the default ‘Program Opt-ins’ tab, make sure you have opted into at least one of the Viveport revenue share programs

They can opt-in in a variety of categories like; one-time purchases, Viveport Infinity, Viveport for VR arcades, or the platform’s in-app purchase service.

The company first ran this offer on their 1st anniversary and again in 2018. Like most storefronts including Oculus and Steam, VIveport usually operates with a 70/30 revenue split and in 2019 instead of offering 100% of the revenue, they decreased their cut to 80/20.

This is a generous move by Viveport, they could easily make a healthy amount of cash during the holiday season, but this is a well thought out move to attract more games and developers to their storefront.
