Facebook credits and other 3rd party currencies?

Postby mrgreen » February 12th, 2011, 7:49 pm

Hiya

Its not clear from your PayVault page, if/how your system would interface with something like Facebook Credits.
Or any other currently unsupported 3rd party Virtual Currency systems?

We all know that in a few months Facebook will make FB Credits the single mandatory currency that can be used on their platform, so it would be really quite important to find out how your system would fare in a situation where the payment option is not supported by your system out of the box?

So (how)is it possible to bridge 3rd party payment systems to the larger playerIO systems? IE I am thinking of common inventory, connecting it to the Database etc...

Ideally it would have a fairly open-ended integration API so the Dev could integrate them on demand, as Facebook credits arent the only one missing, just think of Mochicoins, QQcoins, Xiaoneidou etc etc.

You can use the API methods Buy and Credit to modify a user's payvault given som external information. This will give you accurate coin and item statistics, but you won't get revenue statistics from those external providers since that requires a tight integration on our end.

Thats good news, 2 questions

1) When/if do you plan to integrate some of the following currencies then: FB Credits, Mochicoins, QQcoins, Xiaoneidou?


2) Can we change which payment Providers to display for the user at run-time?

For example if the .SWF is running from kongregate.com, then of course the only payment option displayed should be Kongregate. But of someone takes that .swf and posts it on a 3rd party website, then the rest of the payment providers should be displayed as well ( to maximise revenue for the developer)

(IE the code would look at the root.loaderInfo to see which domain it runs from, and accoridng to that it would display the appropriate payment providers? )

Thanks!!

1) We never announce any release dates, but FB Credits are definitely on the horizon. We need to discuss Mochicoins internally first, and the last two are probably not going to happen since it seems you need to be able to read chinese to perform the integration, and none of us can do that. :-)

2) Of course you can. Remember that we do not provide any interface so you have to display buttons and choices to the users. When a user has made a selection, you can call our API methods and take the appropriate action, for example opening a URL or calling some javascript on the containing page.
