Metro app (windows 8, winrt). Can I add new in-app purchase products after my application will available on Windows Store without updating application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I develop metro (windows 8, winrt) application for selling ebooks. I want to use Windows store as the payment processor to support Windows Store in-app purchases.

    I am interested in next questions:

    1. Can I add new in-app purchase products after my application will available on Windows Store without updating application? (Or I will always need to update app when create a new in-app purchase product ?)

    2. Can I add new in-app purchase product programmatically (dynamically) to Windows Store in-app purchase products list?

    3. If I will add 100 new books every day - I will need every day add 100 new in-app purchase products?

    4. Is there limitation to count of in-app purchase products?

  • Hi lllya,

    To add in-App purchases to your App, you will need to submit a new release to the Store. Any updates to Apps currently in the Store are also handled the same way.

    Thanks

  • I think a good solution is creating virtual money and to know if someone has bought it is put it in the dynamic local settings a mark like localsettings["bestseller"] = "bougth", you have only to get more money bougth in packets of coins.

    The issue I do not know is if I can buy the same product (100 coins for instance) many times. I have just this doubt at this time.
