Apple has responded to Meta’s plan to charge a commission of nearly 50% on purchases of digital assets made within the metaverse after complaining about fees in the App Store, calling the decision hypocritical.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Meta, better known as Facebook, is planning to take a massive 47.5% commission for purchases of digital assets made within the so-called “metaverse.”

The 47.5% discount includes a 30% hardware fee in addition to a 17.5% platform fee. In response to the plan, Apple spokesman Fred Sainz said Market Watch That Facebook is simply acting hypocritical and that while it complains about Apple’s platform fees, it wants to charge creators more.

Apple spokesperson Fred Sainz stated in an email to MarketWatch. “Now – Meta seeks to charge the creators themselves a lot more than any other platform. [Meta’s] The advertisement reveals the hypocrisy of the dead. It shows that while they seek to use the Apple platform for free, they are happy to take from the creators and small businesses that use their platform. “

Facebook and the company’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, have repeatedly called Apple’s “App Store” and the 15%-30% required for in-app purchases, anti-competitive and monopolistic.

Zuckerberg said in June 2020 that Facebook will provide free events, subscriptions, badges, and other paid online products to creators through 2023, after which Meta will announce a commission “less than the 30% that Apple and others get.” That low commission has yet to be announced, And at least as far as the “metaverse” is concerned, Zuckerberg’s promise to cut less Apple has already been broken.
