Using Roku billing for donations?

I'm wondering if I can incorporate donations into an app using the Roku billing platform. It seems I should be able to define specific products like "$5 donation", "$10 donation", "$25 donation", etc, and then allow the user to purchase a donation product.

Any reason that this wouldn't work? Only thing I can think of is if a user purchases a donation, they may not be able to purchase the same donation again since they've "already" purchased it.

Re: Using Roku billing for donations?

You can set an in-app purchase as consumable, which will allow the user to purchase it multiple times, so that shouldn't be an issue. Assuming Roku allows it (no reason I can think that they wouldn't), you'd still be required to share 30% of each purchase with Roku.
