About Amazon

PlayFab supports in-app purchase via Amazon IAP by providing receipt validation, a critical feature to reduce fraud and prevent hacking by players. Amazon Appstore games first complete a transaction on the client, then submit the receipt to PlayFab. PlayFab verifies with Amazon that the receipt is valid, and also checks an internal database to make sure this is the first time the receipt is being presented. Only then does PlayFab credit the player’s account with the item (or currency) purchased.

How it Works

After you setup your app in the Amazon Appstore, you will be able to retrieve your Shared Key in your developer account. Install this integration, then add the Shared Key below. PlayFab will use this information to validate receipts.
