Re: In-app Purchases

Sounds like a good plan for now. You can assess how it's working and change it if you need to.

We don't let anyone sign up in our apps. They learn about our apps through a different channel and are directed to our website where they sign up for a membership or to be a guest for a given investor meeting and then are directed to the appropriate installer on app, or play store for mobile, or directly download and install a Mac or Windows version from the same web page. 

I don't know if play store will be a problem for you in the future. We've never been rejected for our android apps. I don't believe they have a human reviewer.

There's a place to display your website URL on iOS App Store. Folks may tap that as their entry point for getting your app if they can't figure out how to sign up.

Good luck.

Erik, thanks for all the advice and insights.  I am going to move the account
information and payments to my website, but on desktops and androids, you
will be able to do it on both the website and in the app, but for iOS, it
will all be done on the website only.  This is the only way I can think to
do this.  I hope it is not too confusing for my users, I wanted a seamless
solution.  But it is a professional tool, and I feel like if they are really
interested in the tool, they will figure it out.  It is not for the casual

I have only one other concern - Android.  I understand that for games, they
make you do something similar to Apple with in-app purchases.  But when I
submitted my apps to Android, they just simply went live as if there was no
review process.  I am concerned that they may one day actually look at my
app and have an issue with it.  Are people able to sign up and pay for your
Keiretsu Forum service on Android with no problems in the app, or do they
also have a policy where you can't unlock content by paying with a source
outside of in-app purchases?

I've never seen a Review Guidelines for Google.  There wasn't even a place
to give them login credentials to test the app.
