Amazon’s App Store has offered what a very normal marketplace to acquire applications but it has only been lacking one thing; in-app purchasing. Amazon however has fixed that because from now onwards, developers can include the familiar revenue booster that is already available in the iOS App Store as well as Android’s Google Play Store by using the Amazon Appstore In-App Purchasing API.
The services will ensure that users of the Kindle Fire and Android devices will be able to pick up expansion packs, virtual game currency and even manage subscriptions from within the application using the same one-click purchasing experience that has been available in Amazon’s online store. A few prominent developers like Conde Nast and Disney have already taken to the API but for all of you who haven’t gotten the nod from Amazon, you will be able to integrate this function into your apps as well. Embedded above is an introduction video of the In-App Purchasing API by Amazon for your viewing pleasure.
