The store is where agents can purchase premium items. (Not to be confused with the Ingress Shop, an online storefront which sells real-world merchandise.) The items are purchased with chaotic matter units (CMU), which can also be obtained from the store with real-world currency.
The store is accessed from the OPS screen. You can see your CMU balance at the upper-right of the store screen. Before you can purchase premium items, you must have sufficient CMU in your store balance. At this writing, CMU is available in the following lot sizes:
|Lot Size||Cost (USD)||CMU/USD|
If you attempt to purchase an item with an insufficient amount of CMU in your store balance, you will be prompted to purchase more.
As of this writing, the following premium items are regularly available for purchase with CMU in the store:
|Beacon × 3||1,300 CMU||433 CMU|
|Portal Fracker||2,400 CMU||2,400 CMU|
|Portal Fracker × 5||9,600 CMU||1,920 CMU|
|Portal Fracker × 10||14,900 CMU||1,490 CMU|
|Key Locker||3,700 CMU||3,700 CMU|
|Key Locker × 5||14,900 CMU||2,980 CMU|
Starting with the Obsidian anomaly, Niantic has offered special bundles in the store. These consist of 20 portal frackers and 3 special-edition beacons (Niantic or anomaly logo) for 27,000 CMU.
On 15 November 2017, as part of Ingress‘s fifth anniversary, Niantic released the free “Year 5 Bundle,” containing a special edition key locker, one Niantic beacon, and one portal fracker.
The store first became available on 25 October 2015.
