Unlocking Paid Feature

HI All,


This is my first post on BB forum.


I am working on an application which has a set of features.

Some feature would go as free and others as paid app.


I want to know if is it possible to write an app with all features in it (free and paid).

and only on payment from user I do unlock the paid features.


Is there any machanism to do this..?


How to implement this in code..?


Or do I need to write 2 seperate application free and paid..?


Waiting for reply..!


Big O

Re: Unlocking Paid Feature

You can use the payment SDK to unlock features in the app.  You define "virtual goods" in the vendor portal for your app that have sku, name, price for the user to then see in your app to then purchase.  You will have to maintain that state information (persistent between sessions) to allow them to continue to use it afterwards.
