@Brent Vatne, can you please share an update if this is still something you're focusing on working on anytime in 2019?
Have you finished building the infrastructure that will make it possible for you to cleanly integrate with apple pay & android payments?
@Kaloyan Kosev: we have finished most of it but we aren't currently building this feature. https://blog.expo.io/expo-for-professionals-218b7937fafb and https://blog.expo.io/expokit-2019-1e5cb02106f8 outline our current priorities - we first want to make sure people are empowered to build things like this on their own, then we will go back and work on it ourselves
@Brent Vatne: thanks!
Any updates on this? Would be extremely helpful
moving this back to open. there are various options for doing payments in expo at the moment but we are building some other infrastructure now that will make it possible for us to cleanly integrate with apple pay & android payments.
@Brent Vatne: Is there a rough timeline/eta on this?
@Jørn Andre Tangen @gorillatron: nope
@Brent Vatne: Hey brent in another thread you indicated maybe a new "third-party modules" feature could handle this apple/android pay requirement-- this post makes it sounds like payments may be their own separate thing? I know you don't have a specific ETA for either, but do you have any idea which may drop first (third party modules or a standalone payments module)? Here's the post: https://expo.canny.io/feature-requests/p/payment-api
What about integrating https://github.com/idehub/react-native-billing (for Android) and https://github.com/chirag04/react-native-in-app-utils (for iOS)? Instead of custom providers like Stripe? I would be happy to provide a helping hand. I've already used both of these packages.
Is this feature going to let us implement in-app purchases using apple pay? and is there and ETA on when it'll be complete?
@Lyndon Mayer: I think applypay and in-app payments are different. I think you could use applepay to make an in-app payment.
@Calum MacRae: Hopefully !
Any update on this?
It's going to be a pivotal feature to be taken seriously.
