In-App Purchase: Backend server purchase receipt verification

On BlackBerry 10 is there an equivalent to the Android Purchase Status API that permits a backend server to verify an in-app purchase.

 

Simplified sequence of events:

1. User makes in-app purchase.

2. App receives bb::smileytongue:latform::smileytongue:urchaseReceipt

3. App sends receipt to backend server

4. Backend server validates receipt with BlackBerry World server.

5. Backend server informs app that purchase completed.

 

I have not been able to discover documentation that indicates support for Step 4.

 

If this is not currently supported, is it on the roadmap?

There's no service like this currently, but there is one on the roadmap. No timeline for when it may be available though.

Re: In-App Purchase: Backend server purchase receipt verification

Hello,

do you have an approximate date when this will be available? I was checking the roadmap available to public but found nothing there.

Also, is this going to be usable with blackberry native's paymentservice (now called "core")? I believe bb :: platform ::smileytongue:urchaseReceipt is only available for cascades, right?

Re: In-App Purchase: Backend server purchase receipt verification

Hi,

 

Sorry, I meant the internal roadmap. Once we have a time we can share publicly it will be posted externally, but at this time we don't.

 

The service would be designed for use by a server to verify purchases. It's all still early in planning, but I don't see any reason it couldn't also be done from the device.

Re: In-App Purchase: Backend server purchase receipt verification

Hello,

 

thanks for your quick answer, just to clarify, I meant server to server validation, using a receipt # or something that this kind of service ussually has and currently the payment service doesn't provide.
