Last month, Facebook introduced support for paid online events-and because of many companies. That provide these events are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic. The company also said it will not charge fees next year.
At the same time, it complained that Apple “rejected” its request to waive the regular 30% fee for in-app purchases in the App Store.
Today, Facebook announced a reversal of Apple:
Online activity fees will be processed through Facebook Pay, and Apple will not charge a 30% discount. This means that businesses will get all the benefits (minus taxes) from online activities.
This arrangement will last until December 31 and does not apply to game creators.
The news was released after Facebook publicly asked Apple to change its position. It even submitted an iOS application update stating that “Apple bears 30% of the transaction” in the event payment process. (Facebook stated that Apple rejected this update because it contained information that was “irrelevant” to users.)
Although the two companies seem to have reached an agreement, Facebook’s statement today is still a bit harsh.
Facebook spokesperson Joe Osborne (Joe Osborne) said: “For small businesses and creators. This is a difficult time, which is why we do not charge any fees for paid online activities, and the community is still affected by the pandemic.
The reason for the closure.” “Apple has agreed to provide a three-month short vacation. After which struggling companies will have to pay Apple again the full 30% App Store tax.”
Similarly, when discussing the exceptions for game creators, Vivek Sharma, Facebook’s vice president of games, said:
“Unfortunately, we have to make this concession to temporarily suspend other businesses.”
When asked about this change, Apple provided the following statement:
“The App Store provides an excellent business opportunity for all developers, who use it to attract one billion visitors every week in 175 countries. To ensure that each Developers can create and develop successful businesses. Apple maintains a set of clear and consistent guidelines that apply to everyone.”
More specifically, Apple said it will give Facebook in-app payments for these activities before the end of the year and make them comply with App Store rules.
