What's New in In-App Purchasing

Recent releases and documentation updates. Bookmark this page to keep in touch with new and changing IAP features, docs, and additional resources for developers.

Appstore SDK

October 18, 2021

The Appstore SDK provides functionality for handling Digital Rights Management (DRM) and In-App Purchasing (IAP) within your Java Android apps. The Appstore SDK supports apps targeting Fire TV, Fire tablets, and third-party devices where Amazon apps can be installed.

The Appstore SDK will replace the previous SDK, IAP v2.0. Use the Appstore SDK for any new apps you submit to the Amazon Appstore. You can continue using IAP v2.0 for any existing apps, or transition them to the new Appstore SDK. This page guides you through the steps to transition apps to the Appstore SDK.

Learn more about the Appstore SDK in the documentation:

Documentation Update for IAP SDK Integration

Previously, the manifest code sample in the IAP SDK integration documentation had an error with the permissions for the ResponseReceiver.
