Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta has been known to provide criticism of Apple for charging developers a 30% fee for in-app purchases through the App Store. However, the Cupertino company believes that the rate is reasonable.
The direction of Zuckerberg has led to the attempt of Meta to aid its metaverse creators to evade the fees in Apple’s App Store. Zuckerberg believes that the said platform will be able to unlock opportunities for creators to make a living from this.
Overall, Meta will take up to 47.5% of the price, giving the creator 52.5%. The VP of Horizon, Vivek Sharma said that this is considered to be a “pretty competitive rate in the market.”
