Until today, the only way to buy the Fortnite in-game currency for buying cosmetics, V-Bucks, on an iOS or Android device was to use Apple or Google’s in-house payment system. Now, it’s possible to bypass Apple and Google’s payment system, pay Fortnite developer Epic Games directly, and save money. Buying 1,000 V-Bucks costs $10 if you purchase it through Apple or Google and only $8 if you purchase it through Epic. It’s the exact same item but cheaper—and Apple and Google don’t get a cut.
