Support users and resolve in-app purchase issues more quickly with new App Store Server API endpoints, now available in production.

  • Renewal Date Extension. Extend the renewal date of a user’s subscription by up to 90 days in cases of a service or content delivery issue — such as a server outage or cancellation of a live event.
  • Look up Order ID. Confirm a user’s in-app purchase when providing customer support using the Order ID on the purchase invoice sent by Apple. Customers can also view their order ID in their purchase history at https://apps.apple.com/account/purchases.
  • Refund Lookup. Identify whether a user received refunds for past in-app purchases.

App Store Server Notifications Version 2

You can now take advantage of new notification types that cover more user events, including subscription expirations, offer redemptions, refunds, and more. You can also provide a unique URL in App Store Connect for App Store sandbox transactions, separate from the URL that you use for production — or choose to use the same URL for both.

Sandbox Testing Update

The App Store sandbox environment lets you test in-app purchases on device and server-to-server using product information set up in App Store Connect, helping you deliver high-quality in-app purchase experiences. You can now:

  • Clear the purchase history for auto-renewable subscriptions and nonconsumables purchases made by a tester in the sandbox environment, so you can more easily test one-time purchase scenarios and continue using the same test account. In-app purchases made by customers on the App Store are not affected.
  • Change the App Store region for a Sandbox Apple ID, so you can test across regions with the same tester account.
  • Set the renewal rate for auto-renewable subscriptions in sandbox, so you can speed up or slow down how often subscriptions renew for a tester in the sandbox environment. Renewal rates are accelerated in the sandbox environment and subscriptions are automatically canceled after 12 renewals.
