Google store big bully: force developers to use play store’s billing system for in app purchases

Google requires that every app distributed through the play store must use the payment system of the app distribution platform for in app purchases. However, some popular applications on the play store have adopted a workaround to circumvent this rule. These platforms will prompt users to use their direct payment services for in app purchases through their credit cards. In this way, these companies can save 30% of the commission that Google charges. < / P > < p > according to a new report, Google plans to release updated guidelines to developers requiring them to use Google’s in app payment service. “Google plans to step up efforts to require developers to make in app purchases through its play store,” the report said However, the report also said that Google may not immediately remove apps that do not comply with the play store policy. Instead, they will have time to update their applications to use Google’s billing system. A Google spokesman said: “as an open platform, Android allows multiple app stores. In fact, most Android devices are out of the box, with at least two stores where users can install other stores. For developers who choose to publish their apps on Google play, it is our policy that they must use play’s billing system when purchasing in app apps that offer digital goods. We have always worked with our partners to clarify these policies and ensure that they are applied fairly. ” < / P > < p > although both apple and Google have been criticized, the Commission for 30% of the apps is quite high. Epic Games has sued apple and Google to remove fortite from the app store and play store. < / P > < p > Google took the action when Apple was criticized for its 30% app Commission. We believe that this is just the beginning of a battle between developers and application distribution platforms over application Commission. We will see a lot of drama in the coming days.
