Version 4 Major Update - Android

We now use Xamarin.Essentials for getting access to the current activity. So ensure you initialize Xamarin.Essentials in your Android app.

Also if you get a null exception the linker is being aggressive so write the following code in your MainActivity:

var context = Platform.AppContext;
var activity = Platform.CurrentActivity;

Version 4.X updates to the new Android billing client. This means there are few important changes: 1. You must acknowledge all purchases within 3 days, by calling

or the Consume API if it a consumable. 2. You must hanle Pending Transactions from outside of you app. See docs from Google 3.
is removed from the API as it is not needed

Pending Transactions:

  • If the result of PurchaseAsync is PurchaseState.PaymentPending, store the order details locally and inform the user that they will have access to the product when the payment completes
  • When the user starts the app (and/or visits a particular page), if the stored PurchaseState is PaymentPending, call GetPurchasesAsync and query the result for a purchase that matches the stored purchase.
  • If the PurchaseState for this purchase is still PaymentPending, show the same no-access message
  • If the PurchaseState is Purchased, call ConsumePurchaseAsync or AcknowledgePurchaseAsync, depending on the product type

I highly recommend reading the entire Google Play Billing System docs.
