According to The Korea Herald, Apple plans to comply with new regulations in South Korea by allowing developers to give third-party in-app purchase alternatives in the App Store.

According to the report, Apple proposed to the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) an alternative payment system with cheaper fees than the regular 30% charge but did not specify when the move would take effect.

Apple told The Korea Herald that it will work out details with the regulator on the new service fees. The KCC proposed imposing penalties on app store operators that prevent developers from using other payment methods.

To address competition concerns, Google changed its practices in the country to comply with a new law allowing developers to access alternate payment methods.
