Payments

Payments.charge

Overview

This call allows your app to ask the user for a one time payment. Users must have a paid account to run paid apps. Payments will processed at the end of the month. When you request a payment, the user will see a request.
Parameters
const amountInDollars = 0; // amount in USD
const paymentFor = ''; // payment description
dronedeployApi.Payments.charge(amountInDollars, paymentFor);

Example Call

dronedeployApi.Payments.charge(4.00, 'Testing Payments')
.then(
function(success){ console.log('paymentId:', success) },
function(error){ console.log(error) }
)
Note: If your app is not published, the returned paymentId is fake and is not saved to our database. Additionally, having a paid account is not enforced while in development.
Here is a screenshot of what you would see if your app is not published.
