Real-time Developer Notifications

Enable Nami to receive Google's real-time developer notifications for your app.

Real-time Developer Notifications

This is a service Google provides for apps offering in-app purchases and/or subscription products. Google will use this to send information to Nami's servers about key events about the purchase that impact whether a user should still have access to the purchased product.

For subscription apps, these notifications indicate renewals, upgrades, downgrades, cancellations and other similar changes to a subscriber's status.

You can read more about this here.

In order for Nami to stay up-to-date on the status of all your subscribers, you will need to set up Google to send these notifications to the Nami platform.

Google Best Practice
