In-app payments

[ Edited ]

Hello all -

I have an app in the Android Marketplace that is based off the "freemium" model; the app is free but user's buy a subscription to unlock additional content. I use the Android in-app payment system to accomplish this. The Playbook/Android app player does not support this.


The BlackBerry payment service has a simple jar file that it looks like I could just use, but rather than go down what could potentially be a rathole I figured I'd post here to see if anybody has any experience/suggestions. I see no documentation stating that this is supported. I guess the question comes down to: does the Android app player for PlayBook support the BlackBerry World payment api?


Thanks in advance!

Re: In-app payments

I believe not, the jar file you mention is for the java api on bb phones, not the PlayBook, and probably not the android player...
