  • Does Microsoft take a cut of your donations?

    • So if someone "donates" $5 as an IAP does Microsoft take a cut of your donation for itself? It doesn't seem like a donation when the user most likely unknowingly contributes money to another entity for something considered free.  I called that a thank you purchase.
    • It's a regular in-app purchase, so MS does collect their part.
      Also note that this sample is now several years old and many things do not apply anymore.
  • TCD Package?

    • I've installed NuGet extension and cannot install TCD.Control or TCD.Commerce package? Where is it?
      Install-Package : Unable to find package 'TCD.Commerce'.
    • Usually I don't use the NuGet command line - you can right-click on the 'References', the project, or the solution in the solution explorer and select 'Manage NuGet Packages'. If that fails, there should be error messages too that might give more insight.
      happy new year^
