Facebook Also Criticizes the App Store Tax
Same with regard to Apple vs. Epic dispute that pic Games added its own payment function inside the iOS app of the popular game Fortnite and it was rejected by the App Store (and later also on the Google Play Store) It is gradually becoming the “Apple vs. Epic Alliance” flow, with comments such as Spotify wanting to add its own payment function having the shoulder of Epic.
Among them, Facebook started a new claim similar to Epic. Facebook introduced a feature that enables small and medium-sized business owners to make money by holding paid online events such as cooking and training within Facebook’s platform, and 30% from user payment at events held via iOS app Explained that the store tax will be deducted, “To reduce the cost of businesses suffering from a pandemic of a new coronavirus infection, Apple will be able to reduce the store tax or use its own payment function Facebook Pay “But unfortunately the request was denied and you are only paid 70% of the hard-earned revenue,” he explained.
In addition, for web and Android apps, Facebook Pay (which will not collect fees until at least 2021) will be available, so business owners will receive all of their original revenue.
Maintaining security is one of the reasons why Apple only allows apps to be offered to iOS devices through the App Store. Sometimes it can be costly to screen and distribute a huge amount of apps.
However, the more popular apps we offer, the more likely this 30% platform usage fee will be felt. The 30% rule applies not only to the sold-out price of the app, but also to the subscription contract paid through the app (there is a reduction according to the duration), so if the business scale expands, the app provider should have originally got it The amount of will also inflate.
Spotify and Netflix avoid app store tax collection by allowing users to register via the website instead of the app to avoid being deducted from the store tax from their monthly service. However, it may be one of the complaints of Epic Games that this method is not allowed for game applications etc.
On the other hand, Facebook says (rather than avoiding store taxes and maximizing its own profits) “it aims to support small businesses that suffer from the impact of COVID-19,” and the App Store’s fault. It is the tone that small and medium-sized business owners lose money. And Facebook Pay explains that you can earn 100% of the revenue generated from online events.
From the user’s point of view, if the application adopts its own payment method, registration of user information and ID/password will be set for each, and the payment method will be selected, which will reduce convenience. I feel like it. Also, I would like to pay attention to where the store side and the application provider side find a compromise, but for us users it may only change where the money goes.
