New Features

Requester Pays Buckets

On December 31, 2008, Amazon S3 announced the release of Requester Pays buckets. This new feature lets a bucket owner specify that the requester pays for the data transfer and request costs when accessing objects in the bucket. The bucket owner still pays the storage costs. For more information, go to Requester Pays Buckets in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.

Amazon DevPay supports Requester Pays buckets. A common scenario is to use Amazon DevPay with an Amazon S3 Requester Pays bucket you own to sell data in the bucket. For more information, go to Using Amazon S3 Requester Pays with DevPay in the Amazon DevPay Developer Guide.

Known Issues

Error in WSDL The License Service WSDL (at incorrectly lists a child element called RequestId in the ErrorResponse element. The correct name of the element is RequestID (with a capital D). Our plan is to update the WSDL to match what the service actually returns (RequestID).
Limitation on AWS services used You can build an application that monetizes Amazon EC2 or Amazon Simple Storage Service, but not both.
Limitation on decimal places for prices You can set prices with a maximum of only two decimal places.
Throttling of License Service requests per developer Requests to the License Service are throttled as necessary. They are throttled per developer instead of per DevPay product. Therefore, if you have multiple DevPay products, the sum of the requests from all your DevPay products is used to determine whether your requests need to be throttled.
Information not available on the first of the month If you visit your DevPay Activity page on the first of the month, your revenue statement for the previous month might not yet be available. We instead recommend that you view the page after you've received the e-mail from AWS that indicates the revenue statement is available.

Also, the page might display zeros for all the values because the page has not yet been updated with the information for the first day of the month. We recommend that you return to the page on the second day of the month.
Withdrawal limit When you withdraw money from your Amazon Payments account, the withdrawal amount must be at least $10.00.
No sandbox for testing DevPay does not have a sandbox for testing. All testing you perform involves movement of real money.
