    Amazon has collected data about how users engage with IAP in games and reviewed how the most profitable apps are using IAP to monetize successfully. As a result, they have found data on two levels: HOW the top 50 did differently (retention data, session length data, units sold and price data) and found WHAT they did differently to get those results. It turns out there are a handful of things that most of the top 50 do that other games don't do. We'll share that actionable data with you in this session.


    Attendees will learn what IAP design mechanics the Top 50 are using to sell more IAP items at higher prices.
    They will also learn how Halfbrick, Etermax, and others are starting to sell non-digital goods from inside their apps and why they are doing this.

    Intended Audience

    Developers and game designers who want to see how top developers design IAP into their apps, and get actionable tips from this data that they can start using in their own games.
