Mac App Store Prevents Accidental Purchases with an Order Confirmation

Feb 8, 2011 - 3 Comments


The Mac App Store now has an order and buy confirmation, which should prevent many accidental purchases from occurring.

This is a nice addition and undoubtedly helps to eliminate refund requests, and maybe it’ll even make some people think twice before inadvertently buying an app twice.

I imagine it’s only a matter of time before someone is able to disable the order confirmation via a defaults write command, if not becoming it’s own preference option entirely. Hat tip to MacStories for noticing this one.
