    Lightbulb Paypal or IAP

    As you know, IAP for symbian deprecated last month. So I want to integrate a Paypal payment gateway istead of Nokia's IAP.

    This is required for saving app from retailers and cra*kers. Paid apps are everywhere. Because symbian or qt doesn't have any security for external app installing.

    Does Nokia Publish let me for this?

    Cracker is a big issue since the existing of symbian app.As I can remember nokia publish will not allow payment to be made inside the app.It can be done on outside the app only like in a phone browser which I doubt many users will like that given how cumbersome it is.I think it is stated in nokia content guideline or nokia publish guideline.Maybe you could constantly push update for your app to make users feel frustrated for late getting update and buyers happy for the constant update though cracker will just anyway crack it in days.

    in general rules say that you can not. If you have application which is as popular as Whatsapp, then you could talk to your Nokia contacts for checking whether there is something that could be negotiated.
