Registering with BlackBerry World
When you submit an application in the BlackBerry World vendor portal, you can also add digital goods to your application. When you add digital goods, you need to provide details, including the following information that may become data in payment service transactions.
Consumable: A consumable license is temporary, like a movie rental. Users can purchase this type of digital good more than once.
Non-consumable: A non-consumable license is for permanent enhancements, like extra levels of a game. If you use this license type, you must make sure that the digital good is available for a minimum time period as defined in the BlackBerry SDK Licence Agreement. You must also make sure that digital goods are still available if the user reinstalls the application or switches devices. Because digital goods are not automatically restored, it's up to you to make sure that users can access these digital goods again.
7-day Subscription: A 7-day subscription provides users with renewable content, like news publications, with a renewal period of 7 days.
30-day Subscription: A 30-day subscription provides users with renewable content with a renewal period of 30 days.
Static: A static model doesn't use a license key.
Single: With a single license key, all users get the same license key to access your digital goods.
Dynamic: If you select a dynamic license model, you must provide an address for a website that generates license keys for your digital goods. After a user purchases your digital goods, the Payment Service server connects to the website, retrieves the license key, and provides it to the user. Choose this license model if you want your content server to receive notifications when users make purchases in your application.
Pool: For a pool licence model, you are responsible for providing a pool of unique license keys that BlackBerry World can use to distribute a unique key to each user. The pool must contain at least 100 license keys. If the number of available license keys in the pool decreases to 50, BlackBerry World sends you an email notification. If the number of license keys in a pool decreases to 10, BlackBerry World cancels distribution of the digital goods and sends you an email notification.
