Consumable Product?

Greetings,
On the developer website, Add an in-channel product, I see "One-Time Purchase" as an option under "Purchase Type"
However the SDK docs imply that one time purchase is not an option:
https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... Purchasing

Anyone know about these?

Glancing through the documentation I didn't see anywhere that it states that a One-Time Purchase of a consumable product isn't an option, but I do use them in one of my channels. Users are able to purchase the same product again and again.

Thanks, I'm glad it works, but the docs don't mention it at all!
How do you know if the transaction succeeded?  Is there a way to validate a consumable was purchased?

Re: Consumable Product?

I'm not sure what you're asking. Within the channel/app, you just get whether or not the purchase succeeded from roChannelStore like any other purchase. I can get a history of transactions from https://developer.roku.com/transactions, but to be honest I don't really keep track of whether or not a user purchased a one-time consumable since the user can purchase the same thing over and over again.
