Beginning next week, apps in the Android Market will be able to accept in-app payments, and developers can test the process now. “You can now upload your apps to the Developer Console, create a catalog of in-app products, and set prices for them,” blogged Google’s Eric Chu. “You can then set up accounts to test in-app purchases. During these test transactions, the In-app Billing service interacts with your app exactly as it will for actual users and live transactions.”
Apple and Blackberry have allowed in-app purchases on their platforms for some time.
