Are there any third part payment companies support for "Windows 8-style UI" applications? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Many applications such as games need user pay in the application for advanced function or props. For "Windows 8-style UI" application, are there any third payment companies such as paypal in US support in Windows 8?  

    If yes, what's this for China? Will alipay can do the same thing?

    If no, how could make user pay in the application for game etc.?

    Thanks advance!

  • Hi tornadory,

    The following Certification requirements apply for using a transaction provider other than the Stores:

    4.7 If you use a transaction provider other than the Store's, you must identify the provider at the time of the transaction or when it collects any payment info from the customer

    If your app uses the Windows.ApplicationModel.Store  namespace for in-app purchases, this messaging is provided for you. If your app uses any other method for in-app purchases or to collect payments, it must display a message to the customer stating that you are responsible for the transaction and not the Windows Store.

    For example, in-app purchases made from apps produced by Contoso that don’t use the Windows Store for the transaction would display a message such as, “This item is available from Contoso” at the time of the transaction.

    4.8 If your app doesn't use the Windows.ApplicationModel.Store namespace for in-app purchases, your app must prompt the user for authentication to allow a transaction to be accomplished.

    The app can offer the user the ability to save this authentication, but the user must have the ability to either require an authentication on every transaction or to turn off in-app transactions.

    4.9 If your app collects credit card info or uses a third-party payment processor that collects credit card info, the payment processing must meet the current PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

    If you want to go with a third party provider such as Paypal, you would need to contact them, so that you can work out how to enable Paypal support for In App Purchases.

    Thanks
