Anomaly registration is open in app, but I didn’t see any options for the digital kits like have normally been offered. Did I miss seeing them, so I purchase it somewhere else, or are they not being offered this anomaly?
You probably have to pay a fee to see the kits lol
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised. Doubled the cost of frackers, anomaly fee even for offsite rechargers...smh. I get that they need to find a way to fund ingress to keep it going but if they bleed too many sheep dry it’ll be detrimental instead of beneficial in the long term. Shrug.
The event info page says the kits are being sold in the in-app store.
Except they're not there yet, because Niantic. Give it some time.
I kinda figured medals would move to that store eventually. Selling them through that store means they don't have to deal with passcodes.
I was wondering if they were going to shift those to in app as well. Thank you for the info Sparks.
The digital kits will be added to the Ingress Store (main menu → Store) before the anomaly, and we'll post an update here when they're available, thanks.
Will buying the kits result in getting a passcode or will the items and badges be automatically applied to the current account? The first option (Having a passcode) would be great. This would allow us choose the time of obtaining the items ourselves and it would also allow to gift the pasccodes to other people.
Will these be added a €2 "service fee" also, so that people might as well wait to sign up for the free--uh I mean paid anomaly tickets until they're available?
An yes, the service fees that are outright illegal on digital only products in Germany.
But uh .... if they're added to they Store, does that mean we'll just get a bunch of items IMMEDIATELY, and not have a passcode to redeem for later? That sounds kinda..... not practical.
My thoughts on them being added to the store is that Apple is gonna get their 10% from iOS users. Kinda counterproductive if you’re trying to make money, right?
Apple takes 30% btw 🤑
Which would you rather have, 100% of some money or 70% of lots of money?
(oh, and if you choose the first one, you don't get 100% because you're paying credit card transaction fees)
Greedy buggars. I should have known 10% was to little of a cut for them.
You guys might want to update the event page, which incorrectly states these kits are in the store now.
Slight oversight I guess, but a little sloppy.
I'm also wanting to know how the delivery of the digital kits will be done. My preference is also for the passcodes to be emailed for later redemption (this includes the possibility for getting a second pack for local prizes, etc)
