Integrating In-App Purchases for Other Companies

Hello,

I'm new to creating apps with In App Purchases and have a 2-part question:

1) I'm attempting my first test with my own developer account. I've begun creating a channel based on the sample app in the documentation and also have enrolled in Roku Billing Services. However, my dev account has had a status of "Roku Billing Initiated" for a few days. How long can I expect this to take? I saw some other threads on the forum saying they've had this for a few months and needed to post on the forums to get it resolved.

I'm under a somewhat tight deadline here, so any advice on getting this first step resolve as quickly as possible would be appreciated.

2) Looking ahead to the future a bit, I'm going to need to update an existing app that is already out there to include In App Purchases.

What information should I ask that company to get ready in their channel:

  • Set-up a PayPal Account (was this the only option for receiving payments?)

  • Enroll in Billing Services

  • Will they be able to add their In-Channel Products through the UI without affecting their live app? (their app's BrightScript doesn't currently include any use of roChannelStore)

  • Is there any other information I should consider?
Thanks so much for any and all advice.

Years ago when i did it, there was paperwork sent via email to me when i clicked on the link to enroll. Have you received, signed and returned these yet?

Thanks for the reply! I've only clicked "Enroll" and signed into my Paypal account. I saw a mention of a W-9, so I'm assuming the paperwork you're referring to is meant to get me set up with this?

This is too bad since the address I had on my account is the main address of my company HQ and I work out of a different location, so I most likely won't receive that paperwork.

Via email, not snail-mail. Use the Email, Luke!  Smiley Happy
