“Apple has rejected registration of ‘Samsung Pay Mini,’ which is a mobile payment system for online payments only, onto its app store,” The Electronic Times reports. “Samsung Pay Mini is a simple mobile payment service that Samsung Electronics is going to introduce in January. Competitions between Samsung and Apple have expanded towards markets for online payments, and Samsung has decided to focus on Android rather than providing its service through Apple devices.”

“Samsung Electronics has decided not to reapply again to Apple’s app store and has decided to focus only on Android markets,” The Electronic Times reports. “‘After Apple rejected registration of Samsung Pay Mini onto its app store, we have decided to focus on Smartphones with Android OS.’ said a representative for Samsung Electronics.”

“It can be that Apple rejected Samsung Pay Mini because its particular functions do not meet with Apple’s policies on security and regulations. If this is the reason then Samsung can reapply after tweaking some of functions according to Apple’s regulations. However Samsung has decided not to reapply again,” The Electronic Times reports. “If Apple rejected Samsung Pay Mini without any particular reasons then there is a cause of violation of Fair Trade Law.”

MacDailyNews Take: If Samsung has decided not to reapply, then there is no “violation of Fair Trade Law.”
