Next effective discussions with the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Marketplaces (ACM), nowadays we’re introducing more changes to Apple’s program to comply with the regulator’s order pertaining to relationship applications on the App Store in the Netherlands:
Developers of relationship applications in the Netherlands can use the StoreKit External Invest in Entitlement, the StoreKit External Purchase Hyperlink Entitlement, or the two entitlements.
In accordance with the ACM’s needs, we’ve created adjustments to the consumer interface prerequisites declared this earlier March for developers who pick to use possibly or both of the entitlements.
We have altered the payment processing provider criteria for builders who would like to use either of the entitlements.
The 3 % fee discounted also applies to in-application buys that qualify for a decreased commission price (for example, Application Retail outlet Tiny Business Program enrollees or membership products and services after just one calendar year of paid provider — each of which currently qualify for a 15% fee).
As a reminder, builders of relationship apps who want to go on employing Apple’s in-app obtain technique — which we believe is the safest and most protected way for people to order electronic items and companies — might do so and no further action is needed.
We really don’t feel some of these adjustments are in the greatest passions of our users’ privateness or data protection. Because Apple is fully commited to constructive engagement with regulators, we’re producing the further variations at the ACM’s ask for. As we have formerly stated, we disagree with the ACM’s first get and are appealing it.
