I have an app that has been available in the App Store for sometime. Many users have made a life time purchase to be ad free.
I now wish to convert that payment to a yearly subscription.
I have been doing some testing with a prototype app after following the tutorial by Code With Chris.
The life time purchase will no longer be an option once I have updated to subscription
If a life time purchasers deletes then reinstalls the app after the update they will see the ‘Go Ad Free’ button and the ‘Restore Purchases’ button available to them.
Question - I want to understand the behaviour when one of these users taps the ‘Go Ad Free’ button instead of restore.
In my testing the App Store response does recognise that the user has already purchased life time Ad Free status and appears to charge them for a subscription. Although the subscription doesn’t appear in the sandbox recent transactions so maybe there is no charge? It would not be clear to the user though.
Sorry for the long question. I hope that it is clear.
