I know there’s already been too many posts asking for when we’ll get the IAP for Thunkable – and naturally for a good reason. It would just be sweet to, for example, have an easy way to enable subscriptions to your app. A steady stream of revenue might also help us developers to upgrade our accounts to higher pro tiers with the platform.
In any case, I just wanted to ask, first of all, and once again, if we have any newer update as to when this feature would be coming to Thunkable.
But besides this usual stuff, I just wanted to ask if you have any ideas as to how to implement such subscriptions otherwise. Things have changed a bit lately and Apple for example has had to back off a bit in this regard. It seems that it’s not that clear cut anymore that everything has to be IAP. Furthermore, for example, if you think of Thunkable in itself – I’ve paid for it outside the app store and here I am using the app, which asks me to login with my paid subscription (again, paid elsewhere). So how is this possible? I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, good for Thunkable, but could I use the same route myself too – to implement IAP before it’s available on Thunkable and also to avoid the cut the app stores are taking from the sale?
Any ideas anyone? Or from the team? @domhnallohanlon for example?
In any case, thank you again for Thunkable. I really love the platform, but I must admit the monetization is really the biggest challenge at the moment. Developers still got to eat, you know.
