Check already bought In-App purchase when user moves to New Phone/Tablet


  • Hi,

    I am creating a windows store and windows phone store app targeting 8.1. This app has an in-app purchase product (Durable product) with 1 year validity. Initially when the app loads I would be showing a trial version of the app with limited functionalities. Once the user purchases the in-app product, I would provide full access to the user.

    Now my question is once the user purchases the in-app product and after few days the user buys a new windows device, will  I get the status of the in-app product as active?

    Will this code - "if (licenseInformation.ProductLicenses["featureName"].IsActive)" fetch the product purchase status from the store if the new device is online? What will happen if the new device is offline? Is there anyway I can get the status of the purchase?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Yes. The purchase will apply to all systems, not just the one it was purchased on.
