If you have yet to create one, follow the tutorial below.

If you are interested in creating auto-renewable and non-renewing subscriptions, please consult the tutorial below.

Step Two: Add the In-App Purchase

We have highlighted the + icon on the bottom right, which if clicked allows you to create in app purchases and subscriptions from a menu. In this menu, we have highlighted the top half, which offers you the ability to add a consumable in-app purchase and a non-consumable in app purchase when you click them.

Click the + icon at the bottom left of the local StoreKit Configuration File.

In the menu that appears, click on Add Non-Consumable In-App Purchase or Add Consumable In-App Purchase.

Step Three: Fill in the product details

Under the relevant title (Non-Consumable In-App Purchase or Consumable In-App Purchase), complete the following details:

  • Reference Name
  • Product Id (Must be Unique)
  • Price

Additionally, if you have created a non-consumable In-App Purchase, you have the option to turn on Family Sharing (i.e. Apple family plan).

Step Four: Add Localizations

Please note that this is the information that users see when they manage their in-app purchases.

In the Localizations section of the local In-App Purchase:

A | Double click English (U.S.)
