I have a new non-consumable in-app purchase which cannot pass the review process because the reviewer can't test it. I have the new version of the app pending developer release, but I do not want to release the new version that contains the purchase until I have tested it myself. Is this a chicken and the egg problem?
This is my Review Note:
Guideline 3.1.1 - Business - Payments - In-App Purchase
We have begun the review of your in-app purchases but aren't able to continue because your submitted in-app purchases indicate a change of business model for your app.
Specifically, your existing Consumable business model has changed to include a Non-Consumable in-app purchase business model type.
Therefore, we need to verify the implementation of your submitted in-app purchases in the app to ensure your app, and its in-app purchases, are in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.
In order to approve your new in-app purchase business model, we have to verify the purchasability of the items being sold. Please upload a new binary and make sure that your new in-app purchase products are available for purchase at the time of review.
Not sure what am I suppose to do here? Just release the app and hope for the best?
