Friday, 25. September 2020 19:37

Apple Inc. decided to temporarily scrap fees for businesses holding paid online events via the Facebook app, Facebook revealed on Friday. However, Apple will reinstate taking 30% for any transaction through iPhone apps at the end of the year.

The company's decision comes after Facebook called on it to stop taking 30% from small businesses that host paid online events via the iOS Facebook app. The fee is standard on the AppStore for any in-app purchases.

The social network launched paid online events in August, saying it is looking to help businesses that are unable to organize and charge for events in person as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
