After testing in many regions, the Netflix eventually decided to withdraw the payment option via iTunes. From now on, if you want to pay for Netflix subscription via your iTunes account, you will be transferred to the Netflix mobile site.
A company spokesman said the payment method via iTunes is no longer supported. This applies only to new members, while older users can still use iTunes to pay their subscriptions to Netflix.
The new change also applies to users who "come back to Netflix using an iOS device after canceling the payment for at least one month," according to VentureBeat.
Netflix initially tried to "bypass the iTunes payment method" in August, in at least 33 different markets. Prior to that, the company had already removed Google Pay payment for Android users in May.
Netflix is not the only company trying to prevent Apple and Google from earning money from app store markets. Spotify also removed iTunes as a form of payment in July. Not to mention Epic Games, which traversed the entire Google platform and asked users to download Fortnite for Android from its own site.
Soon and steadily, all major app developers are interrupting their relationship with Apple and the Google Store. This is because of the high fees charged by stores in subscriptions and the profit from the number of downloads.
At present, Apple and Google offer a discount of 30% in the first year of subscription, which is reduced to 15% over the next few years.
