Purchasing Question

Post by Rosie_58 »

I am really confused over purchases in the online store...and hoping someone here will be able to help.

If I purchase a bundle(ex: swimsuits, fishtanks) it is free in game after that, right? But what if I switch devices (iOS to Android or Android to iOS) would those purchases transfer over? If I restart my game would those be something that I could keep for my new game? LP's or SP's would be lost if I restart my game, right?

Basically, what do we get to keep and what would be lost if we switch devices or restart a game?

You can see that this was discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=66&p=1015&hilit=onl ... dles#p1015

and as Perturbee puts it:

The only bundle that doesn't reappear is the GoldFish Tank, if you got it for free during a special.
The rest can be restored using the "Restore Purchases" option in the green (...) then (i) menu, provided you installed the game with the same account as you used for purchases. This does NOT work cross-devices. For example: purchases on an iOS/Apple device means you can only restore the purchases there. If you want to bring them to another type of device with a different store (Android/Kindle/BlackBerry/Windows Phone) you'll have to get in touch with Firemonkeys!

I think most of the infos are posted at this forum, too. So it's always a good thought to look at the sub forums :)
