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.

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.

Changing Your Product’s Metadata

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.

  2. Click in the row of the In-App Purchase product you want to edit.

    • Enter review notes.

    • Click Choose File to upload or replace a review screenshot.

  5. Click Save.

    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.
