    Hi guys.

    So I bought Ravensword from the Amazon app store a while back, but have only got around to playing it recently.

    Is looking at how much an in game item was to purchase, and I got an error saying that the app wasn't configured to work with Google play in game purchases.

    Is there a way to get games bought through Amazon to link to Google play? I assumed the in game item would be bought through Amazon, and not Google.

    Thanks in advance.

    Andy.

    That's the way I thought it was supposed to work, via the Amazon App store? Are you using both the most recent version of the app store and ravensword?

    There's no way to link them AFAIK, I think you might need to contact Amazon.

    He's right. It should be going through Amazon's in-app purchasing system, unless the developer goofed and didn't change several settings/API's between the APK's uploaded to each respective store. There's no wa.y to cross-link an app

    Cheers.
    That's how I thought it should work. I've bought a few things through other Amazon games, and they've always linked through Amazon.

    I'll contact them.
    Thanks again.
