Enrollment through the Apple Developer app is not available for this Apple ID

The notice said I have to continue on the website and input my credit card information again. I have purchased successfully and it is appearing in my subscription list on iCloud. Should I follow the step on website? I am afraid that it will considered as another purchase and that means I did the purchase twice. Thank you!

Free trial for non-renawable subscriptions

I'm going through the docs on subscriptions and free trials, and it looks like free trial are only for renewable subscriptions. I'd be interested in a free trial that does not roll automatically into a renewable subscription but that requires the user to explicitly opt in to a subscription tier once the free trial expires. Appreciating any pointers in this regard.

Account deletion requirement

By Jan 31 2022 Apps that allow account creation must allow account deletion. So if the user has an auto renewing subscription that is attached to the account, isn't it up to the user after deleting the account to stop the subscription? Feels like many users would forget to stop the subscription after deleting the account. Any clarification would be helpful! Thanks in advance!

configuration subscription

I would like to offer you an idea for a subscription to iPhone / iPad resources. In a nutshell. The devices are available with maximum memory capacity and LTE module (for iPad). But from the box are available in the minimum configuration. For example - 32gb memory, 2 processor cores, 8 megapixel camera and no LTE for iPad. If the user needs more space or a higher resolution of the camera, he pays through iCloud for this option for a month and uses it as long as he needs it. Likewise - LTE for iPad.

Mac OS Big Sur Beta streaming Issues

Hi there. I am have just updated my Big Sur beta to the latest version. Since updating; I have been experiencing major issues on Safari with some of my streaming services; mainly Netflix, Youtube, HBO Max and Prime Video. I researched a bit and found fixes by switching the VP9 Decoder setting off. This fix has helped only for YouTube but I still experience streaming issues with the other services. Does anyone know of any other fix I can use to solve this issue? I would sincerely appreciate the assistance!

AppStore Links cusomization

How we can customize AppStore app links? I didn't find Documentation on Apple resources about this. We have next case: We use InApp purchases for subscriptions products in our app and we promote one of this subscription with Free trial on our page in AppStore. We also use one service for attribution for marketing where we generate universal links. We implemented feature to use different universal links to suggest different subscriptions for users with these links But when users hasn't our app on their devices, they navigating to AppStore at first, where they also see Free trial suggestion. So we can't guarantee user funnel with right InApp product identifier and user won't interrupt initial subscription suggestion to other subscription type. As a result, we can't A/B test different subscriptions, Ad campaigns and compare the results Can we configure AppStore app link to disable subscription promotion on the page in AppStore? We don't want disable this subscription promotion via AppStore connect account entirely

How to validate subscription upgrades on trusted server?

Hi, I'm working on an app that offers auto-renewable subscriptions on a monthly and yearly basis. The app (or the App Store Server Notification) sends the receipt to our trusted server which validates the receipts against https://buy.itunes.apple.com/verifyReceipt We are able to validate first purchases and renewals by field latest_receipt_info which contains an array with all the purchase transactions. However, when a user upgrades their monthly subscription to a yearly one, the array latest_receipt_info doesn't contain the new subscription (the yearly one). The yearly subscription appears in the array pending_renewal_info which doesn't contain the expiration_date or other fields required for updating our internal database. We also tried to restore the purchase and validate the new receipt again but the yearly subscription never appears in latest_receipt_info and always stays in pending_renewal_info. How can I validate upgrades to yearly subscriptions? why doesn't it appear in latest_receipt_info? Response from https://buy.itunes.apple.com/verifyReceipt by using the receipt sent by the App Store Server Notifications: { "environment": "Production", "receipt": { "receipt_type": "Production", "adam_id": 987654321, "app_item_id": 987654321, "bundle_id": "com.company.productcompany", "application_version": "1221", "download_id": 5000000000000000000, "version_external_identifier": 800000000, "receipt_creation_date": "2021-11-26 09:39:12 Etc/GMT", "receipt_creation_date_ms": "1637919552000", "receipt_creation_date_pst": "2021-11-26 01:39:12 America/Los_Angeles", "request_date": "2021-11-26 10:11:09 Etc/GMT", "request_date_ms": "1637921469566", "request_date_pst": "2021-11-26 02:11:09 America/Los_Angeles", "original_purchase_date": "2021-11-17 13:50:18 Etc/GMT", "original_purchase_date_ms": "1637157018000", "original_purchase_date_pst": "2021-11-17 05:50:18 America/Los_Angeles", "original_application_version": "1219", "in_app": [ { "quantity": "1", "product_id": "com.company.product.subs1.onemonth", "transaction_id": "150000000000000", "original_transaction_id": "150000000000000", "purchase_date": "2021-11-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "purchase_date_ms": "1637832590000", "purchase_date_pst": "2021-11-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "original_purchase_date": "2021-11-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "original_purchase_date_ms": "1637832590000", "original_purchase_date_pst": "2021-11-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "expires_date": "2021-12-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "expires_date_ms": "1640424590000", "expires_date_pst": "2021-12-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "web_order_line_item_id": "150000419389034", "is_trial_period": "false", "is_in_intro_offer_period": "false", "in_app_ownership_type": "PURCHASED" } ] }, "latest_receipt_info": [ { "quantity": "1", "product_id": "com.company.product.subs1.onemonth", "transaction_id": "150000000000000", "original_transaction_id": "150000000000000", "purchase_date": "2021-11-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "purchase_date_ms": "1637832590000", "purchase_date_pst": "2021-11-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "original_purchase_date": "2021-11-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "original_purchase_date_ms": "1637832590000", "original_purchase_date_pst": "2021-11-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "expires_date": "2021-12-25 09:29:50 Etc/GMT", "expires_date_ms": "1640424590000", "expires_date_pst": "2021-12-25 01:29:50 America/Los_Angeles", "web_order_line_item_id": "150000419389034", "is_trial_period": "false", "is_in_intro_offer_period": "false", "in_app_ownership_type": "PURCHASED", "subscription_group_identifier": "19900000" } ], "latest_receipt": "MII...Mk6fIA3", "pending_renewal_info": [ { "auto_renew_product_id": "com.company.product.subs1.twelvemonths", "product_id": "com.company.product.subs1.onemonth", "original_transaction_id": "150000000000000", "auto_renew_status": "1" } ], "status": 0 }

Apple immediate trial cancellation

When I subscribe for a trial period in Apple products like: Apple Music Apple TV Apple News etc. If I want to cancel my subscription via App Store I see a message: If you cancel, you will immediately lose access to Apple Music and the remainder of your free trial. Нou cannot reactivate this trial At the same time for 3d party developers when a user clicks Cancel Free Trial alert says: If you end your trial now, you will still have access to it until some date So my question is how can I replicate the same logic for my app. I've googled a lot but didn't find anything. I believe it should be possible to do since Apple apps are just like any other app distributed via App Store. If not - it looks like unfair competition because users will more likely postpone trial cancellation for Apple products and forget about this which will result in charging their money.

Is a 3rd party subscription okay for Mac App Store?

Hey there, first time posting here! :) Just a simple question: For my desktop app, I have users sign in with an email/password combo that uses our own system (Firebase backend with no 3rd party logins). The app is free to use (requires an account) but you can upgrade to a paid tier for additional features. All payment and checkout goes through our website, which then gets authenticated/license checked within the application. Is it okay for me to publish this app on the Mac App Store as is? Or am I required to use the Apple IAP system for upgrades/subscriptions in this case? Thanks!

App Store Connect doesn't allow me to include new In App Purchases for review

I'm really struggling with having two new In-App Purchases approved. I've added two new IAPs in the V2 of my app, but for some reason they're never approved, they keep coming back to me with the "Developer Action Needed" error and "We have returned your IAP product/s to you as the required binary was not submitted. When you are ready to submit the binary, please resubmit the IAPs with the binary." I have, indeed, included the code to handle them on the binary being submitted (working fine on dev & TestFlight). I remember that when I added the first ever purchase I had to include it where you select which binary needs to be reviewed, but that option never appears. Here's how it's looking: There's nowhere to select any In-App Purchase to be reviewed with that binary. I've peeked at the console and I'm seeing 404's for a URL that might be exactly what I need, is the App Store Connect just broken right now? I've tried everything and I haven't been able to find what's shown here: https://help.apple.com/app-store-connect/#/dev1986a0e5c

In-App Purchases 'Waiting for Review' appears for 4 days

I created new campaigns for black friday. but it has been waiting in 'Waiting for Review' status for 4 days. I send mail and no response. It's almost black friday, the status needs to be 'Approved' in order to complete my tests. What can I do to speed up the process? Do you have a problem with yourself? I added language support to previous packages and they show yellow button in their case.

Bug with PayUpfront offers

Hello! We have a big issue with introductory offers - though a user is eligible for it, the offer doesn't show up in the system billing popup. So the process looks like this: users sees our subscription screen with offer, then taps on Subscribe button and sees no offer price. One interesting thing is that it happens only for US users (UK users have no problem with it). And it also happens only with PayUpfront offer, free trial works as it should. We don't know how to fix this, because it is not us, who determine what to show in the system popup! Who faced the same problem? How did you solve it?
