Are IOS Offer Codes used with In-App purchases still buggy?

The documentation on IOS Offers Codes states that Offer Codes were added in IOS 14 (2020) and there is a warning that in-app redemption is buggy/unstable. Is this still the case 3 years later -  or are the docs outdated? 


Quoted from article:

“Since launch, Apple's in-app Offer Code redemption sheet has proven to be extremely unstable. For example, the sheet may not connect, may not dismiss after a successful redemption, and may not accept valid codes. Additionally, sandbox and TestFlight behavior has been seen to be inconsistent.

A workaround may be to instead redirect customers to the App Store app to redeem codes as described below.”

Hi, in theory yes, but we have had many developers that are using offer codes. If you have found a case where in-app redemption is not working, please share it here and our engineers can look into it.

@Haley Pace so does Revenue Cat still suggest we build a workaround, or does the in-app Offer Code redemption sheet seem more stable nowadays?

Bump on this.
