Introduction to revocation

Last updated on February 12, 2024


AccelByte's e-commerce revocation service allows you to configure and customize your revocation strategy logic for durable and consumable entitlements and virtual currencies. By using our revocation service, you may configure various strategies for purchases reversed via refund, chargeback, fraud, or other situations where entitlements need to be revoked.

Key concepts

  • Virtual currency revocation: Virtual currencies can be revoked from players’ wallets as a result of refunds, instances of fraud, or other scenarios at the discretion of the game developers. Players’ wallet balances can be negative based on the revocation rules chosen.
  • Durable entitlement revocation: Durable entitlements can be completely revoked from players when enabled.
  • Consumable entitlement revocation: Consumable entitlements can be revoked when unused or with enough use count.
  • Revocation history: For each revocation occurred, a record will be created in the database. All records can be found, filtered, and searched for in the Revocation History section.
