Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Sources familiar with the ongoing negotiations between Apple and Microsoft tell AllThingsD that the companies are at loggerheads not over the 30 percent commission Apple asks of storage upgrade sales made through SkyDrive, but over applying that same commission to Office 365 subscriptions sold through Microsoft Office for iOS, which is expected to launch sometime next year." iOS could end up being the only mobile platform without Office.

eBay is not a good example, since it's not eBay that is making the money. eBay is just a transaction processor.(But I'm pretty sure that you still have to register on ebay.com for an account, before using the app. Thus it's not really against Apple's rules)

Is there some physical goods store app does direct sales registration and sales in app? (And I mean where the seller is the app publisher, not a third party.)

However, any transaction that is handled by Apple having a 30% cut is perfectly reasonable.
