    As far as I know Epic can sell as much as they like on their own site and use the purchases free of charge on IOS, just as I pay my Youtube Premium subscription directly to Google and use it on my Apple devices. I guess the same would apply to Spotify.

    I agree it is a bit of an inconvinience, but once set up it is not a big problem.

    For on the fly purchases in Fortnite it is off course more of an issue but as the judge in the case remarked it may be a good thing that young people/children can not just buy so easily.
