I have made a free app and a paid app, I want to provide a link that when clicked, will open up the google play store on my paid app's page so it can be purchased easily from there.

Any pointers as to how to open the Play Store app with this info? Or do I need to invoke a browser somehow?

Thanks

You can use an intent to open the Play Store app, for example:
B4X:
Private GooglePlay As Intent
		
GooglePlay.Initialize(GooglePlay.ACTION_VIEW, "market://details?id=uncledroid.memeeasy.free")
		
StartActivity(GooglePlay)

Use a try catch for old and new phones.
B4X:
Dim GooglePlay As Intent

Try
     GooglePlay.Initialize(GooglePlay.ACTION_VIEW,"market://details?id="& Application.PackageName)
     StartActivity(GooglePlay)

Catch

     GooglePlay.Initialize(GooglePlay.ACTION_VIEW, "https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=" & Application.PackageName)
     StartActivity(GooglePlay)

End Try
Return
