Android :: How Secure Google Checkout For Applications That Access Gmail?

Sep 19, 2010

Would appreciate some comments on whether our Google Checkout is vulnerable when downloading and using apps that request your gmail authentication details e.g.
RSS readers that uses your Google Reader
SMS backup apps that back up to your Gmail account
Picasa photo related software that needs access to your gmail

I was thinking over this weekend that it seems to me that if we supply these apps with our gmail credentials they potentially have the ability to also hack our Google Checkout which doesn't have any secondary level of security other than our Gmail account username/password!

Android :: Google Checkout - Manage Customer Relation - Checkout Also Putting Multiple Holds On Txns

Feb 20, 2009

I know there is a Google Checkout API, but that seems it is more for creating a shopping cart, and interfacing payment methods w/ Google Checkout. Is there any management tool that allows one to 'easily' communicate with the customers? Automate a thank you message, or something?

In addition we have already had one customer call to say he had multiple $1.00 charges for our $0.99 app.

I purchased our $0.99 app and sure enough, I have the following holds on my account 02/20/2009 5399 GOOGLE $1.00 02/20/2009 5399 GOOGLE $1.00 02/20/2009 5399 GOOGLE $0.99

This does not seem right, especially if someone is buying more expensive applications, or using a one time use card.

Android :: Can Use Google Applications Account In Gmail Application?

Nov 16, 2009

So the one factor that will decide if I will buy the Droid or not, is if I can use my Google Apps standard addition gmail address, ie, with the native gmail and google calendar applications on the Droid. Does anyone know if this is possible and whether it works well or not? Are there any other limitations to using a Google Apps account on the Droid, like access to the marketplace? Thank you so very much, I desperately want to use the Droid for my work phone but I want to make sure that I can actually do work on it.

Android :: Google Applications Email With Gmail Application Setup?

Aug 29, 2010

I have read through the threads here and I know this is theoretically possible, but I can't get it to work. I have my Google apps email configured through the regular email app and set to push my email, but it doesn't actually push. I thought I'd try it with the GMail app, but I can't get it set up. When I try to configure it as a Google account, it says it "can't establish a reliable data connection to the server" even though my data signal is fine. This happens both on 3G and WiFi.

I had read to add the account as a Google account, using my full as the login and my password, so that's what I've been trying. I can't find anything that works for me on here, and the stuff on Google is really outdated and just sends me to the mobile website.

Android :: CRC32 Checksum Use In Order To Secure LVL Applications

Sep 28, 2010

Following the examples given by Johns Trevor in order to secure Android LVL Applications ( 2010/09/securing-android-lvl-applications.html), I've been stuck on one only particular issue. Indeed, here is the matter: The most obvious mechanism is to use a lightweight hash function, such as CRC32, and build a hash of your application's code. You can then compare this checksum with a known good value. You can find the path of your application's files by calling context.GetApplicationInfo() - just be sure not to compute a checksum of the file that contains your checksum! (Consider storing this information on a third-party server.)

Howether, I can't find what I must use in my code to detect an "unwanted" modification inside it. crc32 = new;
I've tried many method related to context.GetApplicationInfo() but no one seems to deliver something that change as soon as the code is modified. Has someone already succeed on CRC32 checksum implementation?

Android :: Is There A Secure Pass Code System To Buy Applications

Nov 25, 2010

OK maybe I'm being paranoid and behind the rest of the world who has already done this: I'm afraid of adding my credit card to my Google Checkout account! My main concern being a super intelligent user of my Android phone who will buy a million apps (potentially!) - my 5 year old son

I used to have a credit card on my account - but that's expired
Knowing that the card had expired, I thought I would test out the buying of an app
I was surprised that it only took a few pages of my clicking yes to buy the app
(The purchase didn't go through - I got an email saying this because my credit card couldn't be charged)

Question: is there a secure pass code system to buy applications?
Like needing to input a code at the last step of buying
(I think this is how iPhone works - I say this not having owned one)

I don't think there is a secure pass system - I've played around with my phone loads and have never come across anything. BUT, EVEN if there was such a pass system: there's still something wrong!
I've bought my phone. Not made any changes. Just started using. I would imagine that's what everyone does - as opposed to buying and then customising and making secure (and maybe optimizing the use of energy so that it doesn't die within a few hours of use)

Buying an application: you can cancel within 24 hours (I think that's the time limit) Over the weekend, I let go of business life and only pick up on Monday - so if my son purchased and installed an application on Friday evening, I wouldn't find out until some time later - because I don't look at my phone OR my emails over the weekend! (+ Say if an application was purchased that I then managed to cancel - I then lose the right to buy again and trial with the right to cancel - a small point, but valid regardless I think)

Would be interested to hear what others say - maybe I'm missing something and maybe I'm using incorrectly.

Android :: OT - Google Checkout

Feb 23, 2009

Now I have to play a support person for Google Checkout too. I've got a customer who later cancelled his order and I got this message (via Google Checkout) from him a few minutes ago:

"Hello ..., <John Doe> has sent you the following message:

Question regarding order #234230...: I requested a refund on this order and according to the status, my card shouldn't be charged. But on my bank account today it shows I was charged.

Order Details - <date time> Google Order #<...> Shipping Status Qty Item Price Cancelled Items <software..> $<price> Tax (<state>) : $0.00 Total : $<price> Order cancelled - Your card was not charged"

Does anybody know the link to Google Checkout help which explains why Google doesn't charge immediately (besides the 24/48 hour period) to allow the user to buy multiple items but charge him once to save on transaction fees, and presumably does that for cancelled orders. I'm pretty sure I read about this but my I'm extremely tired and can't find it.

General :: How To Access Google Play With Non-Gmail Account

Jun 24, 2013

I just flashed my Sony Ericson Xperia Play with a custom kernal and ROM. I am attempting to connect to the google play store but it wont let me use my yahoo account. When it says to enter my account it asks for a google account and my yahoo account is currently associated with google, i have been able to download apps for my phone through this account before (Before flashing the phone).

It's not the flash which has made it impossible to use my yahoo account but the fact that i need a gmail account now to download apps. In the past i have been able to use my yahoo account but i cannot get it to work.

How i can log into the play store with my yahoo account? Is it impossible to access the play store with a non gmail account or that you cant have a google account associated with a non gmail email address i will post screenshot for proof.

Kernel: LuPuS_zeus_Stock-gB+iCsv7-full
ROM: Atomic GB 7.0

Android :: Figuring Out Google Checkout

Aug 5, 2010

I put out my first paid app this afternoon and have gotten 4 orders so far. When I initially set up my merchant account with GC, I had it set to authorize only and not to authorize and charge. So of my 4 orders, it shows my net revenue as $0.00 for each. How can I charge these orders?

I've gone into my merchant account now and set it to do both in the future. I guess I should have found a resource on this before setting it up.

Android :: Google Checkout Issue

Oct 15, 2010

I've been using free apps for quite a long time, but now there are some apps that I want to buy. The problem is with Google Checkout. I've searched and the solution doesn't work. I always get the infamous "server error" when its trying to authorize the transaction.

The solution was, put your card info via a computer, then go buy it via the market. Well, that didn't work. I remember when I tried to buy a domain with Google apps, I also ran into a problem because of google checkout.

Has anyone dealt with the checkout problem where you couldn't buy anything at all? Any tips on getting there damn non-existent customer service to help me out?

I tried to buy via T-Mobile billing method, but that is also a no go because the info is stored on my checkout account and not directly to T-Mobile. Man, if they do bring paypal out soon, I hope they don't connect it with checkout otherwise, I can't buy any apps.

I am able to post the order request and in response I get the checkout redirect url where the user is redirected. But then how to proceed with it. How will the android application come to know when the payment is done.

The redirect url is called in Webview and then there is no connection between the mobile app and google checkout. How can the mobile application get the response from Google checkout?

Android :: Market/Google Checkout Integration

Jun 15, 2009

My company registered for Market when the G1 came out, setup a Google Checkout account as soon as possible, and this weekend listed a pay-for app.

Everything looked OK, but after a couple of days of 0 sales and a few users saying they were going to buy the app I thought I'd do a bit of digging around, and found that despite Market letting us list a pay-for app with a price and showing no errors the Google checkout account was suspended and thus couldn't take payment.

The reason; Not agreeing to a new Terms of Service.

So if you're listing a pay-for app, and you've seen no sales, you may want to click on the "Go To: Transactions" link on the developer console to see whether or not it's Google Checkout that's the problem.

Android :: Google Checkout To Set International Tax Rates

Apr 21, 2010

I'm based in the US and if I go into my google checkout merchant account and go into tax settings, there are only options for setting tax rates for US states. Aren't we supposed to charge VAT taxes if we sell ( via Android Market/Google Checkout) internationally?

Not that I would know how to actually pay those countries their taxes.

Do I in fact owe taxes to other countries if I'm in the US and selling software (apps) say to the UK? My company has physical presence in only one US state. For sales to US customers that typically means I only have to charge (the customer) and pay (the state) sales tax when the "shipping address" of the customer is in the same state that my company has a presence in.

But how is it supposed to work for sales from US to other countries, and where do we set this up in Google Checkout and how (if in fact we owe those countries their tax money) do we actually go about paying them?

Android : Google Checkout Stuck - Can't Re-download

Jul 27, 2010

I recently tried to purchase SkyDroid golf app and am now stuck in authorizing/purchasing mode. I've searched the forums and found a few "dead" threads on the subject. I've been around with the developer and google checkout and no one seems to have the answer. The developer canceled the purchase but Market still lists it as a purchased app. So I can't re-download it.

Android :: Google Checkout Order System Not Updating

Mar 8, 2010

I'm not sure how many of you have noticed, but the reporting system of Google Checkout has been broken since around noon on Friday. Orders continue to display in the web interface, but any attempt to query for orders via HTTP requests or exporting orders to .csv files only returns updated information prior to 3/5/10. For example, if you had 50 sales yesterday and tried to access the orders via the notification API or my exporting a spreadsheet, the request would return no information.

I'm not even sure that the Google Checkout team is aware there is a problem. I posted a message in the Google Checkout forum:

There has been no official response. I realize it was over the weekend, but it's really starting to have a negative impact. If you are a dev affected by this, please either post in the thread I linked to or try to contact Google. If someone from Google actually reads this, could you please try to make the relevant team aware of this issue if they are not already?

Android :: Use Google Checkout To Sell Direct From Website?

Apr 15, 2010

I'm looking at ways to sell my app to countries where Android Market does not allow people to buy apps (only free apps available in market).

I was looking at, but most of the apps there seem free and the details on their website seem scant about how to actually setup an account so they can pay me using say PayPal. Also, I couldn't reach them by phone, so I'm guessing its a pretty small operation.

I was also thinking about using Google Checkout to sell directly from my website. Would use a buy now button for digital content delivery, using a server 2 server back end post to send a license key to Google checkout which they only show to user after they've paid (or authorized, or something). User would then enter license key on my website using an Android phone browser only and if key is good would get redirected to the .apk file for download.

Still lots of risks for piracy. I suppose having the user enter the license key in the app itself and having the app communicate back with the server for validation might be better, and there are other solutions for that as well.

My main questions are: - Does anyone have experience using SlideMe for actually selling apps, and are they good with service and getting you paid? -Is there any issue with using the same Google Checkout account that is linked to my sales on the Android Market to sell directly from my website?? -Is it against any Google policy to sell an app directly using Google Checkout for the same app that is available through Android Market?

Android :: Google Checkout - Paypal Integration Into Phone Using Its Web Services?

Apr 1, 2010

I have already asked this question regarding Payment Gateway Integration into Android, but didn't got any satisfactory answers.

Can someone let me know is it actually possible to integrate any of the above mentioned Payment Gateways into Android?

Mostly I think we can call their Web Services and then consume those services which will be in XML.

I will like to know if someone has done the same thing or is absolutely sure about this.

I want to develop a shopping cart type application where the user needs to purchase the products from the list of products. Once the user selects the product, the payment should be made directly from the same application only and not by opening Google Checkout or Paypal mobile website.

Please let me know what you people think about this. Hope to get the answer quickly.
