Is it possible to have a pay structure where the customer would need to pay per device that they would like to activate my app with?

Hi Oliver,

In theory, this would be possible from a programmatic standpoint. On a device-by-device basis, you can mMerchantConnector.getMerchant().getDeviceId(). On your backend, keep a list of "activated" Clover devices, and only grant permission into your app if the current device is activated. Activating a device could trigger a metered billing event for you.

Pros: should be possible.

Cons: Metered billing events are 1-time, not subscription.

Also, I would run this by our App Market Operations team to see if they're okay with it from more of a business/ops side of things (appmarketbusiness@clover.com). I'm not aware of any apps currently in our store that bill through this model.
