BuddyBoss App

Android In-App Products

In this tutorial, you will learn how to set up In-App Products in your Google Developer Account, so that you can link them to the In-App Products you create in your BuddyBoss App settings.

Before you begin, you must have first connected your Google Developer account and configured your Android app in the BuddyBoss App’s settings.

Create Payments Profile

First you’ll need to create a Payments profile for your Google Developer account. You can use a payments profile you set up previously to use with other Google products, or create a new one.

  1. Log into Google Play Console
  2. Go to Settings > Developer account > Payment settings
  3. Click Create Payments Profile
  4. Enter your Business location, Account type and Address
  5. Enter your Primary contact
  6. Enter your Public business information
  7. Click Submit
  8. You can now begin adding In-App Products and Subscriptions

Create an In-App Product

In-app products are for products that require a one-time purchase.

  1. Log into Google Play Console
  2. Click on All Apps and then select your app
  3. In the sidebar, go to Monetize > Products > In-app products
  4. Click Create product
  5. Enter a Product ID
    • It’s a good practice to use your application ID as the base for your product ID. For example, if your Application ID is com.fruit.oranges, and your product is called Tangerine, your product would be com.fruit.oranges.tangerine.
  6. Scroll to Product Details, and enter a product Name and Description
  7. Scroll to Price, and click on Set price
    • Enter the default price for your product, in your app’s currency
    • Google will automatically convert the price to other currencies

Subscriptions are for products that require a recurring purchase.

  1. Log into Google Play Console
  2. Click on All Apps and then select your app
  3. In the sidebar, go to Monetize > Products > Subscriptions
