As part of the Roku account creation process, Roku users are required to provide a payment method, either credit card or PayPal, for future Channel Store purchases. They are also asked to create a PIN that they will use when purchasing.
All purchases are made from the Roku Channel Store on the player. If a customer is purchasing a channel or app they select the channel or app from the Channel Store, select “buy” and are asked to confirm their purchase. If their payment method is valid, the channel or app is immediately added to their Roku player home screen. If a customer is purchasing an “In-Channel product”, as prompted by the channel or app, when the customer selects “buy” they are presented with Roku Channel store screens to confirm their purchase. After they have completed the purchase they are automatically directed back to the channel or app.

For yearly subscriptions, developers will be paid monthly no later than 30 days after each payment is collected by Roku, an amount equal to 1/12th of the annual subscription fee, or the first month’s pro-rated amount, as applicable.
