Why is this bug marked as incomplete? It's easily reproducible.

The fixes I'd propose are:

1) Pass a URL parameter to the Software Center to make it know that the product has already been purchased and update the UI to reflect this.

2) Since the user agent is presumably already logged into the Ubuntu SSO, also pass an auth cookie to the software-center so that users don't have to login one more time. Or maybe make the software-center store auth info in the user's keychain.
