eCommerce Plugin for Office.js add-in to be published in AppSource RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are preparing to submit an Outlook Office.js add-in to Appsource.   This will work for Office.js v1.6+, so Outlook 2016, outlook for the Mac, and Office365/OWA. We plan to charge for the add-in. I'm stuck on the "integrate eCommerce" step.  

    I've read conflicting MS documents that say eCommerce APIs in are (and are not) available for Appsource.  Is there one? or do I need to bring my own payment and license management solution?  The docs talk about in-app purchases.  Does appsource offer Developers that capability as part of a licensing API? I've seen nothing in outlook dev center or comments in stackoverflow.

    I see commerce capabilities in the Windows store API -- can i use that in AppSource?  Should i submit the app to the WIndows store instead? Will it show up in appsource?

    Finally, to keep client information from our servers, we've written our add-in in javascript.  Will these ecommerce APIs require we write a service?

    Thanks for your thoughts!
