Internal testing allows you to test the payments module integration with your app. You can add a test user to perform in-app purchases using the provided now.gg Currency and test the complete purchase flow.

  • now.gg Payments service automatically detects a test user. As a test user, you do not have to spend real money to test in-app purchases.
  • We have provided now.gg Currency to test in-app purchases.
    • now.gg Currency is unlimited and is used to make test purchases.
