Barnes & Noble adding in-app purchases to Nook in future
Book retailer <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Barnes & Noble</a> will be allowing <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Nook HD</a> and Nook HD+ users to make in-app purchases in the future, according to a company announcement. Working with mobile payment provider Fortumo, developers of apps available through the Nook store will have the option of adding the one-click checkout payments system to their products.<br />
<br />
Developers will have access to various <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">tools</a> and resources to implement in-app purchasing, including a dashboard with real-time analytics and purchasing data, with Fortumo handling the processing itself, <a href="" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">reports</a> <em>The Next Web</em>. Users will see a single card payment screen when registering to make payments through the system initially, with subsequent in-app purchases being processed after pressing a "pay" button. <br />
<br />
The addition of in-app purchases on Nook tablets brings the Barnes & Noble ecosystem in line with those of <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Amazon</a> and Google. Google Play has had in-app purchasing for a considerable amount of time, while Amazon will be incorporating the new <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Amazon Coins</a> virtual currency to its Kindle Fire line and the Amazon Appstore in May. <br />
<br />
Barnes & Noble may want to be careful in how it implements the purchases, otherwise it could end up on the receiving end of public complaints from the <a href=" .in.10.minutes/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">parents</a> of <a href="" rel='nofollow'>high-spending</a> children.
