Google just made a huge change to the way people pay for apps in this country

By | November 6, 2021


The fees that digital stores collect for selling mobile apps on iPhone and Android are a hot topic for developers, regulators, and even consumers. Many have decried the standard 30% cut for apps, subscriptions, and in-app purchases (IAP) over the years. And Apple and Google eventually made some changes to the commission structures. The biggest ones came in recent years, as pressure intensified. A few days ago, Google announced that it will take a 15% cut from subscriptions instead of 30%. Now, Google is back with a new announcement concerning digital app sales and IAP in South Korea. Google will allow developers to offer customers alternate payment options to the default Google Play store payments system.

The move is in line with a recent law that forces Apple and Google to offer third-party payments support for IAP. Google is the first to roll out an implementation of the law. But you might not like what Google came up with.
