Virtual Store #
A virtual store is a way for players to spend hard currency and/or soft currency to obtain consumables, collectables, or other items relevant in your gameplay. Hard currency can also be used to purchase soft currency.
The virtual store is defined in the GDK using a JSON file and can be configured to support a variety of purchase types, including single purchases and subscriptions. Offers can be configured to be available for a limited time, and can be configured to be available to players who have completed a specific level or have reached a specific score.
See the customization parameters for your virtual store items here.
Purchase “intents” have been added to the server to allow you to disambiguate on a hard currency purchase between what the user wanted to buy if two store items share the same SKU code (possible with LiveOps configured for the game).
