How to enable buying games in the launcher

How it works

The launcher allows users to buy games without leaving its interface. This is called the pay-to-play distribution model.

To enable this distribution model for a game, you first need to add a game key package in the store, and then specify the package SKU for the game in the launcher project.

Who can use it

Partners with pay-to-play games who have integrated Launcher and Buy Button with the Game Keys module.
