But, still, there is the easiest way to integrate a payment gateway in an app including a Flutter app. You can add In-App Purchases into a Flutter app simply from the App Store on iOS and Google Play on Android.
There are mainly three ways to integrate in-app purchases in your Flutter app: in_app_purchase, flutter_inapp_purchase, and purchases_flutter. Each package comes with unique features and unique ways to install and use a Flutter app. Here comes the role of experienced Flutter app developers who have enough knowledge of the Dart programming language and previously built a Flutter application in both iOS and Android applications.

In_app_purchase is a Flutter plugin that is designed to support in-app purchases through the App Store, and Google Play Store for iOS and Android respectively. It works for displaying products no matter whether it is consumables, non-consumables, or subscriptions available for sale from the stores.
