Amazon is testing a system that will allow tablet users to make in-app purchases, reports Bloomberg.The system would allow for a subscription-based purchase as well as a one-time purchase of some sort of virtual good.

Google and Apple have held strong positions in this arena for a while, so Amazon is likely pursuing this as a means to make the Kindle Fire a more formidable entry in the tablet market.

Having the ability to generate additional revenue after an app has been sold to the user will also help make the Kindle Fire a more attractive platform to developers.
