Google will take a smaller cut when customers buy software from other vendors on its cloud marketplace, CNBC reported on Sunday.

The Google Cloud Platform is cutting its percentage revenue share to 3 percent from 20 percent, CNBC said, citing a person familiar with the matter.

"Our goal is to provide partners with the best platform and most competitive incentives in the industry. We can confirm that a change to our Marketplace fee structure is in the works and we'll have more to share on this soon," a Google Cloud spokesperson said in a statement to Reuters.

Earlier this year, Google cut the service fee it charges developers on its app store by half on the first $1 million (roughly Rs. 7.3 crores) they earn in revenue in a year. Google had said that it would cut app store fees to 15 percent from 30 percent effective July 1 — a move impacting most of the developers on its app store.

In contrast, Apple in November last year said that it planned to lower its commissions only for developers who make $1 million (roughly Rs. 7.3 crores) or less in proceeds in a year from its app store.
