Tinder, a dating app, which was owned by Match Group, has now launched a new payment process that bypasses the Play Store payments on Android devices to avoid the Google’s 30 percent tax cut.

Tinder, a social networking software is the present latest high profile app to raise discontent at the tax that is levied by Apple and Google. Match Group will now encourage its users to enter credit card details directly into Tinder’s system.

This payment process will avoid paying on in-app purchases of subscriptions to services like Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold. The dating app’s new payment process will now bypass the Google Play Store for payments on Android device.

Now payments can be made with credit cards directly in the app instead of paying for the premium services. Tinder’s new payment process marks a major change from the standard payment system where recurring subscription payments for Tinder would be run through the Google’s Play Store.

“We will always try to provide best options that benefit their experience and offering payment options is one example of this. We constantly test new features updates to offer convenience, control and choice to our users,” said Justine Sacco, a Match Group spokesperson.
