Android – In-App Billing kommt

Der langersehnte offizielle “Client” für den Android Market ist endlich erschienen. Konnte mich heute morgen auch erfolgreich einloggen, was gestern Abend noch nicht möglich war. Berichte zum Webbasierten Market findet ihr hier, hier und hier und hier.

Parallel zum Launch des Webbasierten Clients des Markets wurde das In-app Billing eingeführt. Dieses erlaubt es nun dem Entwickler weitere Inhalte, Goodies, etc. über seine App zu vertreiben. Google lässt dem Entwickler nun die Wahl ob er die Transaktionen alleine handeln möchte, oder ob Google ihm unter die Arme greifen soll.
Das ganze wird in Schritten ausgerollt. Momentan existiert eine detaillierte  Dokumentation und eine Beispiel Implementierung von Google.

Hier die ganze Meldung in Englisch:

In-app Billing

After months of hard work by the Android Market team, I am extremely pleased to announce the arrival of In-app Billing on Android Market. This new service gives developers more ways to monetize their applications through new billing models including try-and-buy, virtual goods, upgrades, and more.

The In-app Billing service manages billing transactions between apps and users, providing a consistent purchasing experience with familiar forms of payment across all apps. At the same time, it gives you full control over how your digital goods are purchased and tracked. You can let Android Market manage and track the purchases for you or you can integrate with your own back-end service to verify and track purchases in the way that’s best for your app.

We’ll be launching In-app Billing in stages. Beginning today, we are providing detailed documentation and a sample application to help you get familiar with the service. Over the next few weeks we’ll be rolling out updates to the Android Market client that will enable you to test against the In-app Billing service. Before the end of this quarter, the service will be live for users, to enable you to start monetizing your applications with this new capability. For complete information about the rollout, see the release information in the In-app Billing documentation.

Helping developers merchandise and monetize their products is a top priority for the Android Market team. We will continue to work hard to to make it the best marketplace for your to distribute your products. For now, we hope you’ll check out these new features to help you better deliver your products through Android Market.
