Supported Product Item Types

You specify the type of commercial product item for sale from within your service app when you register items with Samsung Seller Office. Product items can be goods such as tools, weapons, energy, and life in games; books and videos; and subscriptions, or services of the supported item types. 

Samsung In-App Purchase (IAP) now supports the following commercial product item types:

Consumable

Each item (such as fuel and bullets in games) remains available until used; however, after use it is not available. 

Items can be repurchased. 

Non-Consumable

Each item (such as a book) can be used indefinitely after purchase, and it does not expire.

Items cannot be repurchased. 

NOTE: This type cannot be tested for repurchase. However, in either test IAP operating mode, this type can undergo repeated testing that involves repurchase every 10 minutes by initializing the mode.

Non-Recurring (Short-Term) Subscriptions

Each item (such as a monthly magazine and voucher) can be used indefinitely after purchase. Before expiration, new subscribed items are periodically issued. After expiration, no new subscribed items are issued, but all previously issued items can be used indefinitely. 

Items can be repurchased after expiration.

Auto-Recurring Subscriptions

Each item (such a monthly magazine and voucher) can be used indefinitely after purchase. Before expiration, new subscribed items are periodically issued. After expiration, no new subscribed items are issued, but all previously issued items can be used indefinitely.

After the subscription time period has passed after purchase, this type will be automatically repurchased.

In developer test mode, the period for auto-recurring subscriptions is 2 hours. After 2 hours, they will be unsubscribed to support repurchase testing. This compressed time to test is only supported in developer test mode.
