What is the state of Google Pay use for Google Play in-app purchases

Developing Android Apps - 5 hours 47 min ago

There seem to be a proliferation of "Payment declined" for in-app purchases.

What percentage of purchases are affected - and how much harm to developers ?

There are cases where Google Pay users are able to purchase from websites, but get "Payment declined" for Google Play in-app purchases. If they switch payment methods to PayPal, they get the same failure.

And no amount of effort from the user in talking to Google Pay representative or by the developer seem to resolve these situations.

It seems Google Pay seems to blacklist some users for one reason or other for Google Play purchases (i.e. it is a ban on the user, not the app, I think).

What are the solutions available for this problem ?

offlineimap ending before sync is complete

Linux - 6 hours 35 min ago

I'm not entirely sure why my configuration ends without errors before the sync is complete. I have two gmail accounts, one has managed to sync without problems, the other one is somehow stopping after few tens of messages. Not only that, but if I restart the process it looks like it is downloading the same messages over and over again.

Any idea?

Looking to run tasks like a subscription

Is it at all possible for Tasker to receive have actions running in parallel?

I'd like to have different people text me and then receive a motivational text every day for a week. The idea is that each week long "subscription" would be handled by Tasker alternating the WAIT action (which I believe is handled by an alarm being set for Tasker to do an action, rather than an actual countdown) with a SEND SMS action.

It seems like the current set up works OK if only one person texts in, but a 2nd "subscriber" picks up the text stream at that point and the texts to the original "subscriber" stop.

I have set the collision handling to run both tasks at the same time.

It seems it is theoretically doable for Tasker to do this, but any help would be appreciated!

Destroy scene not working.

I have a scene with a number picker and a button. The button runs a different task and is supposed to destroy the scene after it is pressed and run the task but the screen just stays up. I have tried changing the "display as" settings but that doesn't seem to help.

Tasker standalone app runs task immediately instead of waiting for profile to trigger

I'm making a standalone app for my friend to help him download youtube videos.

I have a Profile with "Application > Youtube" and "Variable Set > %CLIP" as triggers which detects when you copy a link to clipboard while in the youtube app. When this happens it runs a task which brings up a menu asking if you want to proceed.

This works fine when the profile is running from Tasker but when I export a standalone app from the project and run the app, it just comes up with the menu straight away. I want it to run in the background and wait for the conditions to be met before bringing up the menu.

Can anyone help me?
