You want to buy that gaming item but you don’t have a credit card or bank account? Not a problem!

Aptoide offers multiple payment methods so that users can make in-app purchases—as well as Top-Ups to their AppCoins Wallets—in whichever way works best for them.

The AppCoins Wallet now has two new local payment methods that allow users to make in-app purchases in their favorite games!

In addition to Credit Card, PayPal, AppCoins, AppCoins Credits and Ask Someone to Pay, users in India can now make in-app purchases using Paytm, whilst our Indonesian users can now use GoPay.

Please note that to be able to use these payment methods, users must have the AppCoins Wallet installed on their Android devices.

Here is a closer look at all the payment methods we currently offer:

- AppCoins (APPC)
AppCoins is a cryptocurrency based on Ethereum ERC 20 tokens that allows for in-app purchases to be made within the Aptoide app store by its users, developers and manufacturers. Users can also buy and trade AppCoins using the following exchanges: Binance, Huobi, HitBTC, and Kyber Network.

- AppCoins Credits (APPC-C)
AppCoins Credits are a virtual currency created by AppCoins that allows users, including the unbanked ones, to make online transactions such as in-app purchases. These credits can be earned by giving two minutes of your time to a game (proof-of-attention) or by spending in gaming items and receiving up to 30% bonuses from such payments in the form of APPC-C – which they can then use to make more in-app purchases.

- Ask Someone to Pay
This feature allows users to ask for funds by sharing a link with the person that will make the Top-Up. This payment method covers a very common case of an unbanked user, a child for instance, trying to buy something for their favourite game and asking their parents to give them the funds to do so.

- Credit Card

- PayPal

- Local Payments
In order to give the best user experience possible, and make it easier for everyone to acquire their favorite gaming items, we have integrated local payment methods, starting with Paytm in India and GoPay in Indonesia (see steps below):

How to pay using Paytm:

  1. Once you’re in the checkout screen, the “Paytm Wallet” option will appear. You can then click on it and press “Buy”;
  2. Wait for CODAPAY’s Paytm pop-up to show, then press the “Continue” button;
  3. Then another pop-up screen will show up asking you to confirm the payment. Make sure the “Paytm Balance” is selected and then click on “Pay” to complete payment;
  4. Now you’ll be redirected to a CODAPAY window saying “Transaction completed”, press “Back to Merchant”;
  5. You will now be informed of the bonus you’ve earned from your purchase and be redirected back to your game!

How to pay using GoPay:

  1. Once you’re in the checkout screen, the “GoPay” option will appear. You can then click on it and press “Buy”;
  2. Now a GoPay screen will appear. Click on the button that says “Proceed to GO-JEK app”;
  3. This will redirect you to a portrait-view pop-up which asks you to “Review Payment”. Check all details are correct and then press “Pay Now”;
  4. You will then be asked to enter your 6-digit code to proceed with the payment;
  5. After you have done that, a pop-up saying “Payment Successful” should appear. When it has, close the window (by clicking on the “X” in the top left corner);
  6. Go back to your game and find a CODAPAY screen confirming your purchase. Click on the “Continue to Merchant” button that appears;
  7. You will now be informed of the bonus you’ve earned from your purchase and be  redirected back to your game!
