Tinder has refused to pay app store fee to Google, according to an agency report. 

This is part of a backlash against app store taxes and could affect the industry dominated by Google and Apple Inc. 

The dating app has now set up an in-app payment option which will allow users to “skip Google Play’s default payment process”, research by Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter has reportedly found. 

The app will now remember the payment information and also remove the choice to swap back to Google Play in the future, Schachter has said. 

“This is a huge difference…It’s an incredibly high-margin business for Google bringing in billions of dollars,” Schachter was quoted as saying.
