Working with Your Product’s Metadata
You can change anything in a product’s metadata except the Product ID and type. Some changes require review by Apple.
Changes before submission. If your In-App Purchase product has never been submitted to Apple for review, you can make changes to the product details.
Reference Name. You can change the product reference name at any time without review.
Display Name and Description. Changes to the localized product descriptions require review. The existing text displays on the store until the new text is approved. The change has its own status separate from the overall status of the In-App Purchase product. Before it is reviewed, you can revert the change.
New Language Support. Because language settings are independent of one another, you can add and remove languages as needed. Text in new languages are reviewed individually. After a product is submitted, changes to localized text or new language support have their own status separate from the overall status of the In-App Purchase product.
Screenshot. A product must have a review screenshot in place for submission; after you upload a screenshot, you can replace it with another, but you can’t remove it. You can’t change the screenshot while the product is in review. You can update the screenshot if the product is rejected.
Hosting Content with Apple. You can change a product to be hosted by Apple before you submit the product for review.
To manage In-App Purchase products, you must be signed in to iTunes Connect as a user with an Admin or Technical role.
To make changes that affect the product’s status, pricing, availability instead of its metadata, see “Working with Your Product’s Status.”
Viewing Your Product’s Metadata
In-App Purchase products are organized inside their app’s iTunes Connect record. You view the In-App Purchase products for an app from the App Summary page.
As an iTunes Connect user with an Admin or Technical role, sign in to iTunes Connect.
On the iTunes Connect homepage, click Manage Your Apps.
Select the app you want to configure In-App Purchase for.
If the app doesn’t appear in the Recent Activity section, click See All (or use Search) to find it.
In the App Summary page, click Manage In-App Purchases.
This button is visible only if your iTunes Connect account has an Admin or Technical role and your team agent agreed to the latest iOS Developer Program or Mac Developer Program license agreement.
The In-App Purchases page opens.
Click in the row of the In-App Purchase product you want to view.
The In-App Purchases page lists the products defined for this app and their status.
Changing Your Product’s Metadata
From the In-App Purchases page, you can do the following:
Click Create New to configure a new In-App Purchase product for the app, as described in “Configuring a Product.”
Click in the row of an existing In-App Purchase product to edit the product information, as described in “Changing Product Display Text.”
Select In-App Purchase products and click Submit for Review to release multiple products at once, as described in “Submitting In-App Purchase Products.”
Accessing Product Sales and Download Reports
The Sales and Trends module in iTunes Connect provides information about how many times an In-App Purchase has been purchased or downloaded. See “Viewing Sales and Trends” in iTunes Connect Developer Guide.
Changing Review Notes, Screenshot, Hosting Content
You can change Review Notes, Screenshot for Review, and Hosting Content with Apple for an In-App Purchase product before the product is submitted. You can change the Reference Name for a product at any time.
Click in the row of the In-App Purchase product you want to edit.
In the In-App Purchase Details section, click Edit.
If the Edit button doesn’t appear, it’s because the product has a status that does not allow editing.
Make changes to the summary information.
For non-consumable products, change whether the content is hosted by Apple.
Enter review notes.
Click Choose File to upload or replace a review screenshot.
The new values appear in the In-App Purchase Details section and are effective immediately.
Changing Product Display Text
You can add product display text in new languages (see “Displaying Products in More Than One Language”) or you can edit the text provided in an existing language.
Click in the row of the product you want to edit.
In the product page, click in the row for the language you want to edit.
Make changes in the Edit Language dialog.
If the product is already approved when you make changes, you’ll see the status of the display text in a new language (or a change to display text in an existing language). The changes to an existing language are shown separately from the approved text.
In the product page, changes to an existing language or new languages are marked as pending changes.
Deleting Product Display Text
You can delete text for an existing language at any time except when the product is in review. At least one language needs to be configured.
Click in the row of the product you want to edit.
In the product page, in the row for the language you want to delete, click Delete.
Click Delete to confirm.
