PayPal or other payment processing plugins

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Dec 29, 2011 10:14 pm

I am wondering whether it would be possible to include an in-app payment processing plugin(PayPal?) that would allow processing payments in Construct 2 apps. Is developing a payment processing plugin in Scirra's short-term plans?

If this is popular I would consider coding a plugin for a merchant CC gateway that I provide in Australia.

We're considering our options for this, but most payment systems require you set up your own server-side scripting, which requires programming knowledge. And if you're doing that anyway, coding your own plugin to interact with it in the Javascript SDK shouldn't be too much extra work. So it's totally possible with the SDK today. We're not sure when we'll get round to payments, we have a very long todo list, so I encourage anyone interested to look in to the SDK - anything we do ourselves may well require server side scripting so official features may not actually make it much less work.

Would it be possible to be able to process in game payments by using an HTML request (either with AJAX or a regular HTML request)? This would be easier then creating our own server side code.

I meant HTTP request instead of HTML request in the above post.

Sorry,

I was wondering that as well. It would be awesome if you could just run some HTML or just put an HTML button somewhere. That way you could have a donate button or something to that effect.

Considering paypal, you could set up the HTML code to the donate button in you paypal account and display it in a DIV object.

Also you could very well use the browser object or the iFrame object and direct to/display a HTML page containing all your html code/links/whatever payment method you want to use.Kyatric2012-01-01 02:18:19

That is perfect. Also you could just link to a webpage with a donation button.

I'd be cautious about using the donation button though. Paypal isn't as lenient with it as they used to be.
