Apple submits plans to allow alternative payment systems in South Korea

Apple has submitted plans to allow third-party payment systems on it app store, according to South Korea’s telecommunications regulator.

The plans is in compliance with a law banning major app store operators from forcing software developers to use their payments systems.

Last year, the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) had requested Apple Inc and Alphabet’s Google to submit compliance plans after the bill was passed in August last year.

In November, Google announced plans to allow alternative payment systems in South Korea to comply with the amended Telecommunication Business Act.

The KCC said Apple plans to allow alternative payment systems for a lower service fee versus the current 30% commissions.
