Google Reveals One Pass System, 10-Percent Fee

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.) - A day after Apple shared its new App Store subscription plan, Google unveiled its new online charging service.

The One Pass system will allow users to get online content for a 10-percent commission fee, compared to Apple's system, which takes a 30-percent cut from publishers.

Google has said the system will work over multiple devices, such as tablets and smartphones.

"Publishers can customise how and when they charge for content while experimenting with different models to see what works best for them," Lee Shirani, the company's director of business product management, wrote in a blog post.

The system will see a primary launch in the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
