Amazon’s ‘Android’ Decision: Restriction Made

Apple and Google receive a 30% developer share of in-app purchases made through the App Store and Play Store. E-commerce giant Amazon gave up selling e-books and similar digital content in its iOS app last year so as not to pay a commission to Apple.

The company has started implementing the same decision on Android.

According to the BBC’s ShiftDelete report; All purchases of digital content, especially e-books, have been stopped in the “Amazon Shopping” application of the Google Play Store. It is discussed that this move may negatively affect Amazon’s revenue from digital sales.

NOW DIRECTED TO THE AMAZON WEBSITE

Those who want to buy e-books must now use Amazon Kindle. Those wishing to purchase and download other digital content sold by Amazon will be directed to amazon.com. The company allows video and music playback from its mobile app, but this feature may soon be removed.

In its financial condition report covering the first quarter of 2022, Amazon reported a total loss of $3.84 billion, or $7.56 per share. In the first quarter of 2021, it announced a profit of $8.1 billion. While the company expects its net sales to be between $116 billion and $121 billion in the second quarter; Analysts expect $125.5 billion.

DISPUTE WITH VISA

Meanwhile, Amazon isn’t just avoiding paying commissions to app stores. Last November, the popular financial services provider announced that it would not accept credit cards in the UK due to a dispute with Visa over transaction fees. In January, he reversed this decision.

Gaming giant Epic Games is also suffering from tech companies’ 30% commission policy. Two years ago, he tried to avoid paying for Google and Apple stakes by setting up his own payment infrastructure in Fortnite. However, this decision backfired and Fortnite was removed from the App Store and Google Play Store.
