At any point of the digital transition,…
Today’s “Compliance! Google: the Google payment scheme needs developers and 30 percent of the rake” has burst media outlets. Some people argue about overbearing Google, some say Google does, some fear about businesses moving abroad, and some also assume that it is a chance to improve the Huawei Hongmeng scheme.
But I pointed out a little bit after I questioned the developers that the media fears were baseless. For developers, there is a simple reality that 30 percent is split. The developer says very politely “Simply obey the rules to reach it.” It’s no news. Google’s strategy was often to enable software developers to use a payment system from Google for in-app buying purchases. It isn’t that troubling to developers. Opposition.
Google said Monday, 28 September, that next year’s app store guidelines will be enforced (2021) forcing developers to use the Google In App payment schemes who launch Android applications on Google Play store.
For apps developers Google has set a year to adapt, and the final deadline is 30 Sept. 2021. By the point, emerging companies will have to use the payment system of Google and will no longer be free to use their separate payment systems, so that Google carries on 30 percent of their in-application sales income.
In that context Google once again matches Apple and continues charging “Google tax.” In this regard, the industry said.
It is well known that Apple has pressured developers to use its unique purchasing method since 2011. Apple collects nearly 30% of consumer transactions through this method. This move is known as the industry’s “Apple Levy.”
Furthermore, the EU anti-trust regulator attacked Apple in August this year, too. Two proceedings have formally been launched by the EU Antivirus Department for consideration of the breaches of EU market regulation by Apple Pay and the App Store.
Facebook revealed in September of this year that Apple had decided to waive the Apple tax for a period of three months for some businesses, ending on 31 December of that year. Apple claimed it is not only for Facebook, but also for other small businesses, to select temporarily waive Apple’s levy, but also for game developers, because the outbreak did not damage them and they had only digital services.
Google’s unexpected compliance order has led to several market debates. Some people argue about overbearing Google, some say Google does, some fear about businesses moving abroad, and some also assume that it is a chance to improve the Huawei Hongmeng scheme.
First of all, Google’s strategy has no effect on the domestic market. Google Play isn’t available anymore in China, after all.
Second, is it impacting developers going abroad?
The developer of a game manufacturer, Li Kai (a pseudonym), said the effect wasn’t that great. As there is always 30 percent pull, and the main Android domestic Channel platforms are also attractive and the percentage of drawings is not thin.
It is clear that Apple’s App Store and Google Play have a set percentage of 30 percent , compared with a percentage of almost 50 percent for many other mobile home app stores and third party app tales.
For eg, recently there has been a recorded shortage of Xiaomi, Huawei and other platforms of game developers like “The Original God” and “The Aweakening of Nations,” as they denied 55 shares.
With regards to the provision of “obligatory entry to the Google payments scheme,” Li Kai says, “You pay anyway as long as you have access to it and everything you have to do. It only takes a little longer.
In this relation, developers are not really receptive to required payment system access but still think that, according to laws, access is appropriate.
However, some observers suggest that accelerating the penetration of new ecosystems, such as the Huawei Hongmeng OS, could be helpful for the activity of “Google Tax.” After all, by selecting one of the operations, producers may boost their chips and at the same time increase awareness among developers and producers to prepare for the PlanB.
Furthermore, looking at the content of the issue, the underlying goal of Google’s rehabilitation of payment rights and how suppliers and construction workers get the money they earn should be given greater importance. This is the underlying explanation that Google has flourished or failed.
