Netflix also states that the transaction has already been made from this site is not Apple’s responsibility and that “any accounts or purchases made are managed by the developer.” In this case from Netflix.

In this way, both the shop account and the stored payment methods and related functions, including refund requests, will no longer be available.

9to5Google also reminds that Netflix does not have to pay thanks to this option 30 percent commission for each subscription taken out in the iOS applications.

From this portal, they warn that the exact date when the implementation of this button began for iPhone and iPad users is unknown, but they indicate that this launch would have taken place worldwide.
