Google has allowed app developers in Europe to use third-party payment systems.
Google appears to have agreed to change some of its requirements for the Play Store. Now developers can add alternative payment systems to non-gaming applications. This innovation will be launched from today. However, this innovation applies only to countries that are part of the European Economic Area.
Note that the commission in these billing systems will be 3% less than in Google Pay, that is, it will be 12%, not 15. Note that those whose annual revenue is less than a million dollars pay a 15% commission. If more, the commission will be already 30% or, when using alternative payment systems, 27%.
These innovations are due to the fact that soon the EU will launch new rules for corporations. They will oblige companies to allow developers of mobile applications to use not only Google Pay.
At the same time, the corporation intends to allow in Europe the use of alternative payment systems in mobile games. Note that the introduction of such changes by Google will create a precedent and will certainly.

The EU wants to oblige Apple and Google to allow the use of third-party payment systems and stores
