Any Plan for Gemstore API?

Hi,
Is there any plan to making API about Currently Sell Item & Promotional Item on Gemstore?
I think this will benefit ANet too on the gem sale, yes?

  • I'd like that endpoint too and I would say that only ANet will benefit from it, because apps that share information about Gemstore could increase the sales and active players on the game.

    I know right? hope this one is available soon (or at least planned to be)

  • If they add gem store website that can be opened in a regular browser, then they can launch a referral program; once other people can profit, those links to buy gem store items will spread all over the place and ANet will be getting tons of sales (or not, and reddit will be spammed with referral links).

    I don't think it is possible. By law in several countries you can't sell digital/not real items with real money, so you could have a referral program only for selling Gems. In other cases someone could buy some items with in-game Golds, that would mean ANet pays you without any real earning, it's impossible :D

  • That's interesting, didn't know about that restriction on selling digital goods with real money. How about an in-game gold referral bonus? Then ANet doesn't need to figure out anything complex for real money payouts. :)

    The idea it's not bad at all, maybe would be better an in-game gems bonus instead of a gold one.

  • Probably never going to be a gemstore endpoint. There's a lot of fiddly bits w.r.t packages and sales and stuff -- it would be pretty difficult to make the API return correct data and I don't have that much time these days to work on API stuff.
