It’s not like there are other companies out there that manage to create service platform revenue without bullying their customers. The App Store model is fundamentally broken, inconsistent and unfair. Yes, they deserve to be paid. But the way they handle it now is nothing but a failure. Maybe just think of different tiers… Put a „call our sales team“ sticker on your business site. Try to think of other ways to get paid, fairly. That’s what this is about. Negotiate a fair price instead of ripping everyone off in the name of the users that don’t understand what you are actually doing: harassing developers that helped your platform and your company become one of the richest companies in the world.

The way Apple handles this whole App Store kerfuffle since forever is an embarrassment to the good things and values this company stands for.
