InApp purchase validation API wrappers

Project description


travis pypi

In-app purchase validation has never been so friendly and convenient!


pip install pyinapp


Currently pyinapp supports Google Play and App Store receipts validation.

Google Play:

from pyinapp import GooglePlayValidator, InAppValidationError

bundle_id = 'com.yourcompany.yourapp'
api_key = 'API key from the developer console'
validator = GooglePlayValidator(bundle_id, api_key)

    purchases = validator.validate('receipt', 'signature')
except InAppValidationError:
    """ handle validation error """

App Store:

from pyinapp import AppStoreValidator, InAppValidationError

bundle_id = 'com.yourcompany.yourapp'
validator = AppStoreValidator(bundle_id)

    purchases = validator.validate('receipt')
except InAppValidationError:
    """ handle validation error """

Important! If your version is under 0.1.3, you need to check the type of purchases. For the sake of convenience you can process purchases this way:

def process_purchases(purchases):
    process(*purchases) if isinstance(purchases, list) else process(purchases)

def process(*purchases):
    for p in purchases:
        """ for instance, save p to db and add a player some coins for it """

This approach allows to process both Google Play and App Store purchases the same way.


Purchase is a universal wrapper for Google Play and App Store receipts. It contains the following fields:

  • transaction_id: id of the purchase (transaction_id for App Store and orderId for Google Play);

  • product_id: what product has been purchased (product_id for App Store and productId for Google Play);

  • quantity: how many products have been purchased (quantity for App Store and always 1 for Google Play - there’s no such field in Google Play receipt);

  • purchased_at: when the product has been purchased, UNIX timestamp (purchase_date for App Store and purchaseTime for Google Play).

  • response: (App Store only) the response (in JSON format) from the App Store.


To run tests, you’ll need tox. After installing, simply run it:
