In-App Purchase

Gear In-App Purchase (IAP) is a Galaxy Apps service that let you sell digital content inside your application, which is installed on the Gear device. You can offer your customers a variety of items directly within your paid or free application. The IAP feature can be offered as a consumable, non-consumable, or subscription.

You can use the IAP, for example, in the following scenarios:

  • An application that enables additional features

  • Any application that allows the user to remove ads

  • A watchface that offers a free version for some hours

  • An audio-book application that allows the user to purchase and download new books

  • A game that offers new levels to play

  • An RPG game that allows the user to buy virtual items
