What is Facebook Credits "product_url"?

Postby moosemouse » June 1st, 2011, 1:59 pm

I am setting up my game with PayVault and Facebook Credits. It seems to be working great! But I don't see how the "product_url" is used.

The definition: A url to a page where the purchase is displayed to the user, doesn't make sense to me,. I have done some test purchases that have not displayed the "product_url" page I put in. But the payment flow seems to work fine without it. I am using it on a Facebook app directly on the canvas.

Is it possible to provide a more detailed explanation of "product_url", or an example?

Thanks!

It's a parameter for the Facebook Credits API, and they describe it like this:
"A permalink to the URL where you display the product to the user."

Honestly, we don't know what it's for either. As far as we know it's not displayed anywhere, it's not mentioned anywhere else in the Facebook documentation, it's just there and it has to be there otherwise the Credits thing doesn't work. We really love the well-documented and well-thought-out API that Facebook offers...

Too funny :D

Well, I am now set up with PayVault.. Facebook Credits on the Facebook App, and PayPal on the other websites. Look out, Zynga, here I come!
