Merging Apps

I currently have two apps in BlackBerry World.

- Jewel Smuggler Free (free)

- Jewel Smuggler ($0.99)

 

I want to combine the two apps into a single SKU and switch to an in-app payment monetization model where the user can buy a virtual good to unlock the full functionality.

 

I was wondering if there was any way to combine the SKUs so that those who have bought the full version can be moved over to the free version with the purchase credited?

 

In an ideal world, I'd like to have one SKU called Jewel Smuggler (free) going forward and those who have paid previously get the unlocked functionality in this app for free?

 

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Re: Merging Apps

You can update your paid version, and generate a "serial" for your users. Then, you can update your free version, and when the user try buy the full version (in app), they can put the serial or buy in BB World.

Note: Your need a web server for validation of serials.
