Apple lets app makers use their own payment system in South Korean App Store



South Korean App Store

South Korean App Store – In South Korea, developers can now use their own payment system in the App Store, Apple reports Thursday. According to South Korean law, Apple must offer this.

Developers can activate the use of their own payment system themselves via the ‘StoreKit External Purchase Entitlement’ function, apple says. It allows developers to add a link to their app, which takes users to the app’s own payment environment.

Apple emphasizes that certain features will no longer be available when choosing your own payment system, such as the Ask to Buy and Family Sharing features.


This is because Apple cannot confirm the payments itself. Also, it cannot keep track of a user’s purchase history or arrange refunds.

The South Korean law that makes it mandatory to allow own payment systems was passed last year.

According to the government of that country, the law must ensure that developers are not disadvantaged by the monopoly position that the app stores of Google and Apple have. The stores do have to pay commission: with the App Store 15 to 30 percent.
