Recently it has come to light that Apple’s 30% app store tax or “Service fee” is unjust. Spotify, Epic Games, and others have shed light on the unfair tax, and finally, people are starting to see that it needs to be changed.

However, I understand that it is tough to sympathize with the idea that a 2 trillion dollar company is taking 30% of revenue from other billion-dollar companies. Who cares about billion-dollar companies having any income taken from them? As a startup founder, I would like to share the issues that the app store tax presents for us.
