What is the in-app purchase?

In-app purchase refers to the ability to buy digital goods, services, or additional content within a mobile application. It allows users to make transactions directly from within the app, typically through a secure payment gateway. In-app purchases can include a wide range of items, such as virtual currency, premium features, ad removal, subscriptions, levels or upgrades in games, and exclusive content. This monetization strategy allows app developers to generate revenue beyond the initial download by offering users the option to enhance their app experience or access exclusive content through purchases made within the app itself.
