Over the holidays, I've gotten a decent amount of iTunes cards & Visa/MasterCard/other gift cards (Which aren't much use in online purchases but work for iTunes).

I've seen other games that have apps have this (Can't recall any at this moment though), and it'd be nice if I could spend them on something I enjoy more than Angry Birds or whatever app I feel like buying (or buying in). So, I'm thinking that it'd be a profitable feature to add. Because right now, the app doesn't make WG any money.




Yes, I did try searching for this. Sorry if its a duplicate.

Not sure if this makes great business sense for WG. Remember in the app store there is a 70/30 split for any purchase. This is why apps like Audible, Kindle, and others have withdrawn their ability to subscribe within apps.

Yeah i don't see this happening most of all since 90% of devices people play app's on can in less than 3 clicks open a web browser and buy gold right from the web page.

Old thread, but I just want to state that payments on the WOT site don't work on Android even if you change the user agent in your browser. A fully functional mobile site would be great if they won't allow you to buy gold through the app.
