Can players make in app purchases using amazon from different app stores?

Hi all. We often distribute our games through other android app store like slideme.org or mobango.com. If a player downloads the game from these sites is it possible for them to make in app purchases using the amazon in app billing system? : 1) For example, we upload a version to the amazon app store, its approved and players can make in app purchases no problem. Then if we upload the same version to slideme.org, can players still make payments in the game using amazon? 2) Also, what if the version number of the game which is uploaded to slideme.org is different to the current live one on amazon, will it still work? 3) If a player can make purchases when they download from slideme.org, what will appear when they tap to buy an item. Will it ask them to sign up with some credit card details, or ask them to login using their amazon ID? 4) Does a player need to have the amazon app store app installed on their device for this to work? Thanks for any help all. I hope other find this useful as well. Martin

Hi, You cannot use Amazon IAP, Gamecircle or Maps API in the application that you upload to a different app store. These services only work when you submit the app to the Amazon App Store. Message was edited by: Sachin@Amazon

Thanks for the answer Sachin. How about with apks that have already been uploaded and approved for distribution on the amazon app store. So for example, I upload and apk to Amazon, its approved and players can now make in app purchases. I then upload the same apk afterwards to another app store like slideme.org, will the in app purchases work? Or does the player need to have the amazon appstore app on their device? Thanks Martin
