Billing Grace Period Now Available in App Store Connect
September 12, 2019
You can now enable Billing Grace Period for your apps with auto-renewable subscriptions in App Store Connect. Billing Grace Period allows you to let subscribers whose auto-renewal has failed due to a payment issue continue accessing your app’s paid content for a period of time while Apple attempts to collect payment. There won’t be any interruption to the subscriber’s days of paid service or to your revenue if Apple is able to recover the subscription within the grace period.
To get started, turn on Billing Grace Period for your app in App Store Connect.
1. From the homepage, click My Apps, and select your app from the list.
2. In the toolbar, click Features, and in the left column, click In-App Purchases.
3. In the Billing Grace Period section, click Turn On.
4. In the pop up window, click Confirm.
In order for Billing Grace Period to work properly, you’ll need to use receipt validation to ensure you are providing service to customers within the grace period.
