US apps can now link to payment options on developer's website

Apple has updated their App Store Review Guidelines to now allow apps in the United States, that offer in-app purchases, the ability to include a link to the developer’s website that informs users of other ways to purchase digital goods or services.

Apple’s full summary can be found here.

The complete set of changes can be seen below:

  • 3.1 Payments
    • 3.1.1 In-App Purchase:
      • Apps and their metadata may not include buttons, external links, or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms other thanuse in-app purchase, except as set forth in 3.1.3(a). Apps may use in-app purchase currencies to enable customers to “tip” the developer or digital content providers in the app.
