KiezelPay is a way for developers to accept money for their Pebble apps and watch-faces. It is not a way to pay for products/items with your Pebble watch.
Developers work hard and we understand that, so why shouldn't you get paid for your hard work? We made KiezelPay easy to add, and easy to get the money that you deserve. It takes minutes to setup and to start collecting money.
Once the user downloads the app/face with KiezelPay integrated, the user's watch will then vibrate and present a 5 digit code. The code is entered at kiezelpay.com/code where they can purchase access to the app/watch-face. Once purchased, the code screen disappears on the watch and they can continue to use the app/face as normal.
There is no cost to start using KiezelPay. KiezelPay does, however, take a 27% fee for each purchase with a minimum of $0.27 USD.
*KiezelPay handles all sales tax requirements. However handling the revenue you as developer will gain from KiezelPay as "income" and all tax requirements following from that in your country of residence is your own responsibility.
Currently we only accept PayPal payouts. Developers are paid out every last thursday of the month through a verified PayPal account. We will not send your income via any other source.
Yes, but the merchants have the option to disable credit/debit card payments in their account. So it is possible that for some apps you can only pay with PayPal.
The exact extra cost depends on the price of the app being sold, but on average, it costs us an extra $0.20 to process credit card payments compared to PayPal. Our profit margins are not large enough to absorb this extra cost, on cheaper apps we would even loose money for each purchase if we did that. Merchants can choose to charge the $0.20 extra fee to the customer, or absorb this fee themselves.
If you do not want to pay the $0.20 extra fee, use PayPal instead. It is possible to link your credit/debit card in the PayPal account as payment source.
We are working to add this feature. Currently tell your customer to create a PayPal dispute or contact us for the refund. Note: Fees charged for refunds by our Payment Services Provider (typical $0.05 per refund) are taken out of the developers earnings and not by paid by KiezelPay.
We issue refunds for digital products within 30 days of the original purchase of the product. We recommend contacting us for assistance if you experience any issues. If you have any questions about our Returns and Refunds Policy, please contact us at email@example.com.
Yes, create a new discount on the discounts page in your account.
Kiezel Watchfaces and KiezelPay are not the same. When you buy the full package of Kiezel Watchfaces, that will give you access to all watchfaces you can find at https://www.kiezelwatchfaces.com/faces/ (not the watch apps)
On the other hand, KiezelPay is a payment system that can be used by any developer that wants to help fund their Pebble development through paid apps. In conclusion, any watchface that is not listed on https://www.kiezelwatchfaces.com/faces/ was not made by Kiezel, and is not included in the Kiezel Watchfaces package.
Yes. Once the user closes the Pebble Time app, the watchface (with KiezelPay installed) will be upgraded and trial mode will be activated. Once the trial ends the user will need to purchase the app/face in order to continue using.
The best way to get started is to sign-up for an account and visit our developer documentation page. Then just follow our easy step by step guide.
For an average developer it takes about 30-60 minutes.
Side-loaded development apps/watchfaces get another account token then apps/watchfaces installed from the Pebble Appstore. For that reason KiezelPay will not recognize that you already have a license for the app. The easiest way to solve this is to buy the sideloaded version of your app, with a 100% discount code so it does not cost you any money. From that moment on KiezelPay will have a license for your side loaded app account token and you can test upgrades without problems.
This probably means you forgot to disable test-mode in the app and other people are "purchasing" your app in test mode. To fix this, release an update of your app as soon as possible with test mode disabled. Everyone that "purchased" your app when test mode was enabled, will see a new payment notification within 24 hours (as soon as the periodic recheck happens) and will have to pay for real this time to unlock the app again.
We support this with our bundles feature. You can simply create a new bundle on the products page in your account. When the customer installs one of your apps which is part of a bundle, he will get the choice to purchase the complete bundle, or only the single app.
Please visit kiezelpay.com/reset and you can follow the steps to reset your password.
Currently this is the only way we can pay you. A PayPal account is required if you want to get the money that you make.
