Build Status


Need professional help and support? Contact Me.

I dedicate a considerable amount of my free time to developing and maintaining this Cordova plugin, along with my other Open Source software. To help ensure this plugin is kept updated, new features are added and bugfixes are implemented quickly, please donate a couple of dollars (or a little more if you can stretch) as this will help me to afford to dedicate time to its maintenance. Please consider donating if you're using this plugin in an app that makes you money, if you're being paid to make the app, if you're asking for new features or priority bug fixes. Thank you!

Installation

Install the plugin (Cordova)

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-purchase [--variable BILLING_KEY="<BILLING_KEY>"]

BILLING_KEY is only required for Android. Check here for details.

Install the plugin (PhoneGap)

Add the following to your config.xml file:

phonegap cli-7.1.0
<gap:plugin name="cc.fovea.cordova.purchase" source="npm" version="6.0.0">
<param name="BILLING_KEY" value="MIIB..."/>
</gap:plugin>

phonegap cli-8.0.0
<plugin spec="https://github.com/j3k0/cordova-plugin-purchase.git#phonegap-cli-8.0.0">
    <param name="BILLING_KEY" value="MIIB..."/>
</plugin>

phonegap-cli-8.1.1 is not supported if you need Android, because it ships with a buggy cordova-android version (7.1.2) that doesn't allow installation of .aidl files. If you don't need android, you can use the latest version of the plugin.

Install recommended plugins

Install cordova-plugin-network-information (click for details).

Sometimes, the plugin cannot connect to the app store because it has no network connection. It will then retry either:

  • periodically after a certain amount of time;
  • when the device fires an 'online' event.

The cordova-plugin-network-information plugin is required in order for the 'online' event to be properly received in the Cordova application. Without it, this plugin will only be able to use the periodic check to determine if the device is back online.

Setup your Application

Getting Started

If you don't know much about In-App Purchases, you'll find a good overview on the subject from those guys:

They all share the same concepts, so they are a good reads in all cases, with some advice that apply to all platforms.

To ease the beggining of your journey into the intimidating world of In-App Purchase with Cordova, we wrote a guide which hopefully will help you get things done: https://purchase.cordova.fovea.cc/

In short, you'll have two main tasks to accomplish:

  1. Setup your application and In-App Products on AppStore, Play or Azure platforms using their respective web interfaces.
  2. Add In-App Purchase code to your application.

For setup, the wiki contains good information.

For the code itself, the API Documentation is a definitely a recommended read.
