Subscription Management with Purchasely Firebase Extension
Iman Rahmati
Shout out to Purchasely for their great product and building an Extension to streamline the integration with Firebase https://t.co/xMDO6DDdLC
Purchasely launches its Firebase Extension that empowers new mobile apps to deploy In-App Subscriptions without any backend resources. 
The goal of Purchasely Firebase Extension is to keep track of your mobile users’ In-App Purchases & Subscriptions easily & seamlessly via Firebase Authentication & Firebase Firestore.
Bim, a Digital Gym app, is accelerating its monetization with Purchasely Firebase Extension. Benjamin Plessis, CTO of Bim app, says:
The Firebase Extension offered by Purchasely is incredibly simple. With one day of research and 15 minutes of configuration in the Firebase console, our Firebase-based infrastructure was ready to use to monetize Bim through subscription. Combined with the ease and speed of integration of its SDKs, Purchasely provides a turnkey solution that is ideal for mobile application startups.

All views are available on a per OS view and per pricing plan view.
New countries (🇳🇱 🇮🇳) add regulatory pressures
Regulatory news never stops, even during the Holidays Season.
🇳🇱 The Dutch regulator said Apple violated competition laws for dating apps. It has ordered Apple to allow dating-apps providers to use alternative payment systems. The company faces a fine of up to 50 million euros if it fails to comply. Apple has filed an appeal.
🇮🇳 One week later, on New Year Eve, the Indian competition regulator opened an investigation against Apple’s business practices in the country. The document released by the CCI is available here: 20 pages.
the Commission directs the Director General (‘DG’) to cause an investigation to be made into the matter under the provisions of Section 26(1) of the Act. The Commission also directs the DG to complete the investigation and submit the investigation report within a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of this order
