I beleive there's also a new 3T type.

We have no idea what these are as they are not listed on Apples help document http://help.apple.com/itc/appssalesandtrends/#/itc0c699d615


All my 3F entries have `developer proceeds` > 0 so i'm a bit confused as to whether they are sales or not.


Please don't tell me they're refunds haha.

I am also seeing the new F3 type in my sales repots for two days now and was not able to find it anywhere in the documentation. Anyone has more information about it?

I have emailed iTC support, but not heard back yet.

Me too, and today they answered:


"We've made some updates to Sales reports to now show redownloads, and information on the device used. Additionally, there are some changes to Product Identifiers to support tvOS.

The new device column shows where your app was purchased, updated, or redownloaded. Values include Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Desktop.

The supported platforms column denotes which platforms your app supports. Values include iOS, tvOS, or iOS and tvOS.

We also added redownloads to your reports. These are indicated by new Product Type Identifiers:


3: Redownload of iPhone-only, or iOS and tvOS app (excluding iPad-only)

3F: Redownload of Universal app (excluding tvOS)

3T: Redownload of iPad-only app

F3: Redownload of Mac app"

Thanks for the info.


<rant>I have been seeing these codes for at least a month. Yet the "Sales and Trends Guide: App Store" document has not been updated. Is there really no checklist at Apple that says "update the document when we add new codes." This another example of the shoddy operation that is iTunes Connect.</rant>

It's now 2021 and the "Sales and Trends Guide: App Store" document still does not contain these codes.

I bet that watch band vendors get better data.
