The purchases range from $0.99 (€0.89) to $99.99 (€89.99). Additionally, the "Tesori" section allows players to exchange 50 gems for increasing amounts of dragoncash (amounts increase as the game levels up). During each 24 hour period of the Light and Dark events before magic reset it is possible to trade five gems for 30 light magic and 30 dark magic. As there are no third-party advertisements used in the game, all revenue for DragonVale development is generated by in-app purchases. It is important to note that it is NOT necessary to make in-app purchases to experience and enjoy full gameplay in DragonVale.

There is nothing available via in-app purchases that is not available during normal game play. The purchase of treasure simply accelerates game progress for the player.
