A step by step guide on creating an In-App Purchase Non Consumable that uses Family sharing on Apple's App Store Connect.

Family sharing is only available in non-consumable In-App Purchases. Consumables (i.e. products that can be bought multiple times) do not allow In-App Purchases.

Please note that once you turn on Family Sharing you cannot turn it off.

Once you press confirm to "Undo" the change, you would have to delete the In-App Purchase and create a new one to undo this change.

Step One: Create the Non-Consumable
