Hello, 

at Lake Coloring we are in process of migration to RevenueCat. At the moment we are just forwarding receipts from our backend to RevenueCat API.  We are migrating to RevenueCat SDK in our iOS app but have a problem with mainland China, more specifically api.revenuecat.com seems to be blocked in mainland China. Since our backend is reachable by vast majority of provinces and operators in China(but not all of them, so we do understand the difficulties with the region) we would like to have at least similar reachability for RevenueCat.

All suggestions how to work around this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Not an answer here but same challenge/blocking applies to Russia as well.

The solution to the problem was using proxy. Although it is very hard to get reliable proxy that works across all China mainland. Certain provinces seem to have more intense blocking.

We used our cdn with disabled cache as proxy.

Is there any update on this? Does RevenueCat work in mainland China?

Is there any official way to deal with this / a guide to work around this limitation?
