In-App Items

This section has details about data entry of in-app items sold through free or paid Android and Gear applications.

 

Your free or paid Android and Gear apps can offer and sell in-app items in the over 90 countries that support Galaxy Apps' paid services (all in-app items are paid items). The Samsung ecosystem supports a range of payment methods (including credit card, PayPal, and phone bill).

You offer in-app items for sale through your app (for example, through an in-app item store that you design). Payment transactions are managed through Samsung Billing, which is preloaded on all new Samsung Galaxy and Gear devices.

At the time of user purchase, the Samsung ecosystem manages getting and displaying the sales information of the in-app item; (for example, availability, current price, and payment options).

For details about in-app item pricing and payment methods, see Application and In-App Pricing and Payment.

For in-app item requirements, see the 7. Application Pricing. section of the Samsung Galaxy Apps Seller Office Terms and Conditions.
