Things To Remember

This section exclusively lists the important terms and guidelines to follow while integrating with now.gg Payments Module.

Terms

  • now.gg Payments Module, Billing Service, and Payments Service may have been used interchangeably.
  • Depletable, non-depletable products are also referred to as consumable and non-consumable products/resources
  • Entitlement of content/product may also be referred to as delivery or allotment.

Purchase Verification

Purchase verification is an essential step within the purchase lifecycle. now.gg Payments module offers purchase verification using a Public key and a verifyPayment API.

Consuming Purchases

The consumption of purchase refers to the processing of purchase and granting the entitlement of the product (product delivery) to the user.

  • The user can place multiple purchase orders for the same consumable product.
  • Please verify that the first purchase is consumed, i.e., processed and delivered to the user, before processing a subsequent order/re-purchase of the product by the same user.

Non-consumable Products

To enable non-consumable products as in-app purchases, you will need to write an implementation for your app/game based on the following logic:

  • List the product for purchase to the user.
  • After the user makes a purchase, disable or hide the said product for that user.
    • Disabling or hiding the product will effectively limit the purchase to once per user, making it a non-consumable product.

Refund Processing

If you have integrated now.gg Payments module with your app/game, any refunds for in-app purchase orders must be processed as illustrated below.

To process the refund:

  • The user has to contact us at store-support@now.gg with the orderId of the purchase.
    • The orderId will be available within the purchase receipt generated after payment.
    • We will verify the orderId associated with your order.
      • If required, we will also verify with the developer if the refund should be processed.
    • Once the orderId is verified, we will process the refund back to the original payment source of the said order.
  • After the refund is processed, we will send an email confirmation to both the user and the developer.

Purchase Callback Implementation

If you wish to implement a callback with the purchase flow, you can do so. The following steps will help you set up a callback:

  • Refer to the initiatePurchaseFlow method within BillingManager.java.
  • Locate .setDeveloperPayload(string), where string should be replaced with a string you wish to pass during purchase. Example: setDeveloperPayload(123sf456).
  • This string will be passed back to onPurchasesUpdated.
