Introducing the BlackBerry Payment Service and BlackBerry Payment Service SDK
Attention developers! Got some news released from Inside BlackBerry on new ways to monetize your applications through BlackBerry App World. BlackBerry App World will now offer access to consumers in over 100 countries and territories supporting 26 different currencies. And, to increase the options you have for monetizing your apps, RIM has announce the release of the Payment Service SDK Beta, which allows for live in-application purchases via the new BlackBerry Payment Service.
In-App purchasing has become a big part on how Smartphone users purchase content from applications. The BlackBerry Payment Service SDK allows you to easily offer content for sale in your app, while providing the consumer with the trusted BlackBerry branding.
Do you plan on using BB payment services for your in-app content?
Do I have to update BB App World for this?
Or how can I use this?
Hello Olaf, this is a developer tool so they can add the ability to have BlackBerry consumers purchase in-app content through the BlackBerry system, rather than be directed to a 3rd party like Paypal to purchase your apps in BB App World. If you are a consumer then you don't have to do anything.
