Can we test webhooks before our app is approved on the apple app store?

We want to test our In-App Purchase Flow end-to-end in TestFlight using a sandbox account and see sandbox data in RevenueCat and receive the associated webhook events.



Our app has not yet been approved on the apple app store. It appears I can only provide App Store Server Notifications URLs in the App Store section under App Information. I don’t see a way to add them to a TestFlight build.



Is there a way to accomplish my goal before being approved on the app store, or is that a prerequisite of receiving webhook events from sandbox IAP transactions?

Hey @Gwynn!

Yep- RevenueCat will send webhook events for both production and sandbox/TestFlight builds based on your configuration in the RevenueCat dashboard, and it doesn’t require the App Store Server Notification URL to be set in order to work (although it will speed up delivery times), and doesn’t require your app to first be approved on the App Store.
