    The t&c states that all in-app purchases must be made in the app itself.

    However, a couple of issues:

    1) My app building method doesn't offer IAP in their features list. That is, even if I wanted to offer IAP, it wouldn't be possible.
    2) The unlocked content itself isn't within the app. The purchase is made on my site, content is unlocked on my site, and nothing inside the app itself changes.

    Therefore my question is, does this count as an "external" purchase, or is it the same as linking to your online store, where someone could register an account & buy items?

    Probably better to direct this to Apple and get a definitive answer. I can't imagine you will be very happy if somebody here gave you incorrect advice and you fell foul of their rules.

    You're probably right.

    With that said, if anyone has experience with this, please inform. It doesn't hurt to know the prior experiences of others.
