Amazon has decided to take a hard line against the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) pressure to change their approach to in-app purchases. In a letter to the commission, the company stated that it would defend its “customer-centric approach” if the FCC pursued a complaint in Federal court. The government agency is considering suing Amazon over what it calls lax practices to prevent any possibility of unauthorized buying of in-app purchases (IAPs), for example by children.
Amazon is extremely concerned about having a “customer-centric approach”.
Well, unless you use their Kindle and Comixology apps on iOS. Then they’re more concerned about the money. Which is also what they’re concerned about on their platform.
