Samsung In-App Purchase for Galaxy Watch

Samsung In-App Purchase (IAP) for Galaxy Watch is a payment service that makes it possible to sell a variety of items in applications installed on a Galaxy Watch and internally manages communication with supporting IAP services and the Samsung ecosystem (such as Samsung Account, Samsung Checkout, and Samsung Rewards).

In-App items can be offered as consumable, nonconsumable, or subscription. For example, you can use IAP in the following scenarios:

  • An application that enables additional features
  • Any application that allows the user to remove ads
  • A watch face that offers a free version for a specified time period
  • An audiobook 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

Here are two examples:

  • Try and buy watch face

  • Buy an in-app item
