PayVault makes it easy to add ingame payments and/or a complete virtual currency system to your game, complete with an optional secure bought-item management system.
Each user is given a secure vault that stores their virtual currency balance (we call it coins), and any items they've purchased with PayVault. The API contains simple methods for getting and refreshing the contents of the Vault as well as buying items or coins.
PayVault integrates with many different payment providers, so you can work with exactly the payment providers you want, and effortlessly switch between them any time.
When you're just getting started with PayVault, our essentials guide provides a quick bird's-eye view
of the entire system. Reading it should be the first step in learning how to use PayVault.
