Getting a channel subscriber's email address

Hi fellows!

Do you know if it's possible to implement a feature in a channel where users can submit their email address to the channel's owner with one click? Or by entering it 'manually' in a field and submit it?

I would like to add an in-app purchase option to my channels, where subscribers can order my print comic books. I need to come up with an easy solution to collect their shipping address. I can simply display a message saying "Email your shipping address to me@home.com" but I'd like something more convenient...

Any suggestion?

roChannelStore.GetPartialUserData will do this.

Re: Getting a channel subscriber's email address

Well, if you are subscribing and using roku's billing platform... Otherwise, your customer will enter their email or mailing address into the roku, or onto your website, or another form you control.
Keep in mind 'convenient entry' of information through the roku interface is best avoided - it would take 3-5 minutes to enter a full mailing address. If the rules have changed for accessing subscriber data from the roChannelStore, feel free to correct me.

Hi SV, as long as you use our billing system for your in-app purchasing, then you can use the GetPartialUserData method that MarkN mentioned.
