If you want to sell items inside your applications such as in-game coins, levels and others, you may need to set servers up to communicate with, you may need billing infra to gather payments, you may need to manage interactions with users for authentications, payment and many other things. Plasma will simply handle all those things mentioned above and you don’t need to worry about it.

The only thing you need to do is make your applications include Plasma and communicate with it. For example, with in-app purchase of items, your applications just invoke the purchase method of Plasma and receive the result of the purchase in the method of the listener method. Plasma will show dialogs, communicate with Samsung Apps server and invoke the listener methods to return the result of the request.
