About In-App Items & Subscriptions

In-App Purchasing allows you to purchase items (in-game currency, premium unlocks, etc.) within a free or paid app.

You can use these items to unlock additional functionality, such as adding new levels in a game or accessing issues of your favourite magazine.

The same 1-Click Settings you use to purchase apps in the Amazon Appstore for Android also apply to In-App Purchases. Any in-app item over £20 requires a parental control password or purchase PIN.

Types of In-App Items

Single-Device Items (in-game currency)
You can only access Single-Device items (in-game currency such as coins, stars or bucks) on the device from which they were purchased. Single-device items are indicated by a "Single-Device" message at the bottom of the in-app detail page.
Multi-Device Items (premium game "unlocks")
You can access Multi-Device items (premium game "unlocks" or magazine issues) on all compatible devices registered to your account; you will not need to buy them again. Multi-Device items are indicated by a "Multi-Device" message at the bottom of the in-app detail page.

Subscription Items

You can access subscriptions on all compatible devices registered to your account. Subscriptions are automatically renewed until you turn off auto-renewal. You can also manage your subscriptions on your device. For more information, go to Manage Your Subscriptions.

Developers and publishers can also include a free trial with your subscription. You are not charged if you turn off auto-renewal at any time during the free trial period. If you do not turn off auto-renewal during the free trial period, your subscription continues at the regular price using your default 1-Click payment method. You are eligible for one free trial per subscription.

For more information, go to Set Parental Controls for In-App Purchases.
