Made concessions: Apple canceled 30% commission in the App Store, but not for everyone

Apple has repeatedly been condemned for too high a commission for conducting money transactions in applications from the App

Store - 30%. And suddenly the company made concessions.

What does it mean

Facebook recently urged Apple to cancel the feefor paid events to support users during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, for conducting online trainings or concerts. Then the company refused, and now it has changed its mind.

So, Apple until the end of the year decided not to charge30% commission on payments for online events that the business organizes through Facebook tools. A similar exception was made for other developers - for example, Airbnb and the classPass training service.

But for game developers, the commission remains. Apple believes their business hasn't been hit hard by the coronavirus.

"Apple has agreed to provide a short three-month respite, after which troubled businesses will again have to pay Apple the full 30%," Facebook said.

Let us remind you that recently the “Coalition forfairness of applications ”(Coalition for App Fairness), which aims to protect the rights of developers to create applications and conduct business directly with their customers. The coalition already includes Epic Games, Spotify, Match Group (owner of Tinder), Basecamp, Tile, Deezer and others.
