When attempting to fetch products from a StoreKit Configuration file, we ran into an error similar to:

[Default] Error enumerating unfinished transactions for first transaction listener: Error Domain=ASDErrorDomain Code=500 "Unhandled exception" UserInfo={NSUnderlyingError=0x283328180 {Error Domain=AMSErrorDomain Code=2 "Finance Authentication Error" UserInfo={NSLocalizedDescription=Finance Authentication Error

To fix for the error, follow the steps below.

Step One: Enable StoreKit Testing

Enable StoreKit testing using the tutorial below.

Step Two: Clean Build Folder

Press Command + Shift + K to clean the build folder.
