Join Ron Buencamino for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating products in iTunes, part of Implementing In-App Purchases in iOS 11 with StoreKit.
- [Instructor] We need to setup the AppStore portion…of our store front by creating our product entries.…The first thing we need to do is add our products…to our app record via iTunes Connect.…So I'm here in my browser and I've already logged in…to iTunes Connect and I'm inside of my app record.…I'm going to go over to Features and under In-App Purchases,…we can see that I've already created a consumable item…called Single Credit.…I have this consumable item here so that it can be used…to test out our code.…
Non-consumable and subscription items,…stay linked to the iTunes account that makes a purchase…and it can only be purchased once.…So consumables are a good way to iron out…kinks in your code using a single iTunes account.…You can test the other items later on…when you're ready.…Now to add a purchasable item,…go ahead and click on the plus button.…We see that we're brought to a screen…that asks us the type of purchase we want to create.…We see also that we're presented with our four types…of purchases.…We're going to go ahead and select Non-Consumable.…
First, get an overview of StoreKit and the types of purchases you can offer, including consumable and non-consumable products and non-renewing and auto-renewable subscriptions. Next, learn how to configure new products for sale with iTunes Connect and display a storefront right within your app. Ron then shows how to request and process payments, and deliver users' purchases to their iOS devices. Plus, learn about restoring purchased content—a smart strategy for keeping your app rating high—and requesting reviews from users using the new SKStoreReviewController API, which doesn't require leaving the app.
