Is it possible to sell tangible goods using the iPhone store kit in an iPhone app? For example, my client would want to sell their products and post them.

Obviously these products would not be listed elsewhere in the Apple app store because they wouldn't actually be apps.

Thank you for the links but I am still not sure if what my client requires is possible.

Lets say for example my client has a shop and they are selling clothing. My client wants an interactive app for the iPhone which allows people to browse the clothing and purchase as desired (right size, colour, etc). Is it possible to have the money transferred from their payment source using their apple ID?

So essentially payments would be exactly the same as in-app purchases, but an order would be raised (which would require postage address) which would be served by the high street shop.

It would be preferred this way because it makes it much easier for the customer as they do not need to scramble for their credit/debit card. All they need is their trusty Apple ID and password.

Thanks,

it's my understanding that store kit can only be used for items which are electronically delivered via itunes....

you could get round this by the purchase item being a voucher that you pass forward.  your customer would also need to consider that the pricing bands on app store are fixed.

Thank you for your input, I guess it will have to be done via a http request with SSL, etc. just like a normal website.
