Free app with in-app purchase possible?

Hi,

 

I am thinking about releasing my latest creation as a free app, but with the possibility of in-app purchases. Is this possible? I am not sure due to the fact that free apps do not have licenses.

Check the vendor portal configuration for an app that is "free".  Believe it is possible.

I too agree I believe it is possible. I know it is possible to have a free app  (i.e a game) and have additional levels available for purchase from within the app.

This is possible. I do this for one of my games.

You need a minimum of OS 1.0.6 for in-app purchases

For folks considering offering in-app purchase in the USA, be aware that there are sharks in the water.

Re: Free app with in-app purchase possible?

I think it's not big difference beetween IAP in Playbook or BB10. 

The most difference in sandbox section while live testing.

In-app purchasing on BlackBerry 10 works just like it does for the PlayBook.

 

Anything that worked on the PlayBook should continue to work on BB10 as well...
