Why expires_date and grace_period_expires_date is same?
Hello!I have a subscription with grace period 14 days, if this subscription is expired and now on grace period i get this JSON:[app1800_sub_personal_monthly] => Array ( [billing_issues_detected_at] => 2021-08-27T08:29:54Z [expires_date] => 2021-09-12T08:29:50Z [grace_period_expires_date] => 2021-09-12T08:29:50Z [is_sandbox] => [original_purchase_date] => 2021-07-27T08:29:52Z [ownership_type] => PURCHASED [period_type] => normal [purchase_date] => 2021-07-27T08:29:50Z [store] => app_store [unsubscribe_detected_at] => )Not so long ago, these fields were different and I use field “expires_date” to understand that the subscription expired and he
Configure package with 2 products (1 platform)
Hi guys! I do subscriptions for my app. A have 2 entitlements (Standard, Premium). And I have 3 periods for every entitlement (1 month, 6 month, 1 year). There are 6 products at all. As I understand, a can't use default packages for this, and I need to create custom package for every product? For example: place “1 month standard” and “1 month advanced” in to default MONTHLY package. Because now, I created 6 custom packages. Am I doing everything right? Can you give me some details about this please.
How do I link purchase made by the user without login in my backend?
The question is for an iOS app - My setup is that I am using my backend to give access to “Pro” features through the API and I am using Revenue cat to process the payment. Sign up comes after the purchase is made and it is optional to the user. I want to understand how I should give access from the backend to users who are making a purchase but do not sign up? This approach should also work when the user comes back and restores purchase after uninstalling the app.
Converting columns in customer lists to date
I am trying to look at when users start a free trial cancel the subscription. I exported a customer list from RevenueCat and have been looking at the data in Excel. In Excel the columns that I am looking at are trial_opt_out_at and trial_start_at. Does anyone know how to convert the values in these columns to dates from the numbers that they are set. Currently the values in these columns look like - 1629693003000.

The app got prices from the cat, but still it doesn’t work. We also can’t make a test purchase via cat and didn’t seen any tries in the sandbox dashboard. Maybe someone know what to do nextThanks in advance
When migrating all legacy products have to be added?
We’re currently migrating to RevenueCat. In the past we had many products on Android/iOS mainly for pricing tests where user subscribed to. We don’t offer these products anymore but of course these users should still have access to the PRO features.Do we still need to add all these legacy products (subscriptions) in RevenueCat too, so we can find out they have a valid subscription? Or do we only have to set up the products that we actually want offer in the app?And will this affect analytics somehow when products are not added?BestJanis
How to attach additional context to a purchase?
Here is the Setup: 1. App is a race car game where user has different cars they build. 2. User can buy new parts for each of their cars. 3. Upgrades are onetime, non-expiring purchases. 4. One upgrade is for one car only. 4.a. if user wants to upgrade tires for two cars...the user makes two purchases of product ID "nrp_tire_lvl3_199" User Scenario: 1. User is managing two cars (A, B, and C).2. User wants to upgrade tires on car B.3. User makes purchase of "nrp_tire_lvl3_199"4. Our server receives the Web hook notification of the purchase. ??? How can we tell the server which of the User's cars to apply the upgrade to? How can the Server know to apply the upgrade to Car B?
Advice on migration from old user ID system to new regarding block purchases
Ok, so I read and think I understand how the Restore Settings work, but have some further clarification settings. We’re in the process of migrating to a new backend where all users will need to sign up again with a new system where they will get user IDs. These user IDs are the ones that will not be recycled changed. We don’t want a scenario where users can log out of their new accounts, create a new one, restore subscriptions (mint a new subscriber), then give those credentials to someone else or what have you. That’s why we want to have the Block Restores enabled, but we aren’t sure how to handle the migration process from the old version of our app to the new one. What I was thinking - first, we don’t enable this Block Restores Setting and let everyone migrate to the new login system, restore purchases if they need. Our old version is also using the old SDK and we aren’t calling reset user ID anywhere - what will happen when we upgrade to the new SDK and haven’t called login yet? W
Question about price_in_purchased_currency in S3 ETL (with regards to taxation)
I’ve got a question about values that are dumped out via the S3 ETL, and how it relates to taxation.Suppose we have a subscription with a price set as $10 USD in the Play store. The Play Store seems to set regional prices based on current exchange rates and local taxes. Say, for example, that same $10 USD now shows in Australia as $15.49 AUS (the conversion rate, plus 10% tax, plus “country-specific pricing patterns”, according to Google). If we had a purchase go through in Australia, what can we expect to see in the data on S3, specifically for price_in_purchased_currency? I’d expect the price_in_usd to be 10.00, and the purchased_currency be AUS, but what will the price_in_purchased_currency be? Will the price_in_purchased_currency be the final price that was charged to the customer, or will it exclude the tax? Is the behaviour the same for purchases made through the App Store?We’re trying to sort a few things out before we have actual purchases flowing through. Unfortunately
Are there any resources for designers, like sample screenshots to create user flows?
As a product designer, I’m finding a bit difficult to get evidence and examples online of the checkout process in order to create the necessary user flows for the project I’m currently working on… My team is currently considering using Apple Pay, Stripe and Google Pay as payment alternatives for the Flutter app we are building, and I would like to see the checkout process sequence, examples and any specific UI styling needed in order to provide everything the dev team needs to build it into the app. It would be good to have some references and/or resources for designers that are not GitHub experts or that can’t create the sample project by themselves.Thanks!
No Total Revenue in Revenue Chart
Is there a reason, why you removed the total revenue chart in the new revenue charts? I know it is shown, when you hover it, but that makes the user experience way worse. We also used a screenshot of this chart to report to our investors. That is not possible anymore. I would suggest, that you bring it back as it was, or give the possibility to at least see it. This change decreased usability in my opinion.
Conditionally apply Introductory Offers?
I am looking into how to support discounted subscriptions in our app similar to how we provide them in our web based product. We have a few different scenarios that I am looking to support, specifically:Giving an introductory offer of 20% off for 3 months based on signup criteria Giving an introductory offer of 20% off for 6 months based on different signup criteria Giving a free month of a subscriptionI am looking at https://docs.revenuecat.com/docs/ios-subscription-offers to try to figure out the best option for me. It looks like Introductory Offers is what we want for the first two bullet points since we can automatically apply it in-app at initial purchase time without the customer needing to enter an offer code. However, the notes beside intro offers says “SDK applies offer to purchases automatically”, does that mean I can’t control which of the two intro prices I offer? Is that a misunderstanding of intro offers on my part perhaps? Basically, based on server side information, I w
Currency in IOS seems incorrect
I’m using react native to fetch the packages and looking at the logs: const offerings = await Purchases.getOfferings(); const packages = offerings.all["default"].availablePackages; console.log("Paywall Currency", packages.product.currency_code)Looking at the logs, the products inside the package has the price in USD. But the phone I am running the code on is set to Australia for the region of the account. I went to Settings > Account name > Media & Purchases > Country Region > Set to AustraliaAm I doing something wrong here?
Are prorated prices included in Webhooks and S3 exports?
I have a question about how RevenueCat outputs the price fields (price, price_in_purchased_currency) with actions that have proration. I can think of two scenarios where proration comes into effect:Android upgrades with IMMEDIATE_WITH_TIME_PRORATION iOS upgradesWhen these events occur we receive a webhook with details about the change. Does this webhook contain the full price of the new plan, or the prorated price? I am also wondering about the transactions that get exported into S3, but I’m guessing that answer is the same as the webhooks.As an example, say a users is paying $50 per month for a subscription. Half way through the billing period they upgrade to a subscription that is $100 per month. Is the `price` in the webhook going to be $75 (assuming the renewal date remains the same) or $100 (if it reports the full price of the new plan)? I’ve tried to test this out myself in Sandbox, but with the super quick renewal periods, it’s hard to say for certain what is going on.A similar
Is freemium model mandatory for subscription based apps in app stores?
Hey RevenueCat community,I’d like to ask for some guidance related to app monetization. Is it mandatory for a subscription-based app to provide free functionality? Or an app could be paid-only with a limited free trial after which an app’s functionality is not accessible?
PlayStore purchases registered, but not triggering webhook
Testing in Sandbox we’ve encountered the following issue: Upon making a purchase on Android we see the following behavior:Play Store (on device) - Gets success confirmation PlayStore console order manager shows the order Purchase shows up on PlaySore order manager RevenueCat Dashboard has a record of that exact purchase (matching transaction_id) However there’s no record of webhook that’s being triggered for INITIAL_PURCHASE (see image above)Is this an issue with RevenueCat SDK or the RevenueCat service?Please advise
Crossgrade not working.
Hello,iOS users changed subscription plan but it seems the new subscription does not immediately affect their account.Customer profile shows user successfully changed their renewal preference to higher subscription plan but user’s current Entitlement has not been changed. I think the user's Entitlement will be changed on the next subscription renewal.What I want is crossgrade, users should upgrade and use new plan immediately.All of our subscription plans are in the same subscription group and subscription duration are same. It should be Crossgrading with Same Duration but I have no idea what is the problem.Please help me to solve the problem.
What are the best practices to implement offline use-case?One of the main features of our subscription is to use our outdoor app with poor internet reception or no reception with maps and other information downloaded before. can we check the subscription status while the device is offline? what happens when the reception is very bad but not offline, is it still good to call “Purchases.shared.purchaserInfo” or will it make the UI feel non-responsive?
Swings between A/B in experiments
Hi RevCat team and community Would love some guidance around LTV calculations in the experiments feature. We’ve been doing price testing of two price points for 2+ months now, and every day we check the experiments feature it is different, wild swings between variant A and B. I would have thought now we have been through 2 monthly renewal cycles we would start to see a trend or more signal, but it is different recommendation each day. Is there a recommended time period to run an experiment? Or someone on the RevCat team that can help us analysis the results or setup our experiment differently? Thanks - love the idea behind the feature - just looking for best way to utilize it. Cheers
