In preparation for a mid-September launch of the Palm App Catalog e-commerce beta program, Palm announced on Tuesday that it is now accepting applications from developers who want to charge a one-time fee for their WebOS apps.

Developers can actually submit both free and paid applications via e-mail and if accepted into the beta program, they will have the opportunity to have their apps featured in the Palm App Catalog ahead of the next round of releases (speaking of which, when will the next round be, hmm, Palm?) and be among the first to be paid for downloaded apps.

Apps can be purchased via credit card and Palm said app sales will be split 70/30, with 70 percent going to the developers and 30 percent going to Palm, which is in line with Apple and Google.

More information about the submission guidelines and acceptance criteria are outlined on the Palm Developer Network Blog.
