IAP Legalities Knowledge Share

Hi there!

We are planning a monthly membership subscription for our users where accessing this membership gives the user a sub-profile that also gives them extra abilities within the App.

Given this scenario, it would be great to understand if the payment for this membership would need to be handled by Apple/Android pay or can it be handled by an external payment provider (i.e Stripe)

At the moment we have one IAP that gives the user unlimited likes for a week which we implemented using Apple/Android pay as that is a digital product used within the App.

Ideally we’d use stripe because of its extensive API and CRM but I’m all ears and obviously don’t want the headache of our App being removed from the stores for not complying with their payment laws.

Any words of warning/wisdom appreciated!

Thanks !
