In-App Purchase Items

In-App Purchase Items
Your free and paid Android apps can sell in-app items to your users.


Samsung In-App Purchase (IAP) manages getting information about, purchasing, and reporting the consumption of:   

  • Consumable items (purchase whenever needed, use once, purchase again)
  • Non-consumable items (purchase once, use any number of times)
  • Auto-recurring subscription items (purchase, use for the length of the subscription, and automatically renew)

Samsung IAP Purchase and Payment Process



  1. A user decides to purchase one of the in-app items that your app offers (for example, in an in-app store). 

  2. IAP manages the purchase and payment:
    1. The user confirms the purchase by entering their Samsung Account password. 
    2. The user reviews the purchase details, specifies the type of payment, confirms the purchase, and then executes the purchase.
    3. Samsung IAP server completes the billing process.
  3. The user returns to your app, which properly responds to the item purchase (for example, the user can spend coin items).


Note: Your Galaxy Watch apps can sell in-app items. For details, see the Galaxy Watch In-App Purchase Items section.
