        Hi everyone, I'm still new to iOS Development, I submitted my mobile app which I developed for my music streaming site. I know apple usually wants in-app purchase but there is no such feature for my website. Though users are able to make purchases on the website.  They get the chance to login to their web accounts.  Please I need someone to advice me on this.. This is what apple sent me I don't want to make another mistake. Please read the information below and advice me on what to do.....

          Apple seems to be concerned that you are using a charging system other than IAP ('purchase song through app') in a situation in which you may be required to use IAP.  Are you familiar with the guidelines regarding IAP?


          Apple is also concerned that you are displaying and distributing album covers and songs for which you do not have the right to do so under copyright law.  They want you to send them documentation indicating you have such rights.
