App Store Connect Gets the Ability to Alert Developers about Failed Renewals, Billing Issues
Apple’s updated server-to-server notifications gets the ability to send alerts to developers in case of failed renewals or when a billing issue is resolved. The notifications are automatically enabled for developers who have configured server-to-server set up in App Store Connect.
Server-to-server notifications from the App Store let you receive real-time updates in a subscription’s status, so you can provide customized experiences for your subscribers. New notifications are now available when a subscription renewal fails due to a billing issue and when a billing issue is resolved by the App Store. In addition, a unified receipt containing information about the latest 100 in-app purchase transactions is now included with the notification. If you’ve already enabled server-to-server notifications in App Store Connect, you’ll automatically receive the new notifications and unified receipt for these subscription events.
Server-to-Server notification service is offered for auto-renewable subscriptions. Typically, the App Store Connect sends notifications to your server and thus informs you about real-time changes to a subscription status. After enabling the Subscription Status URL, you will automatically start receiving server notifications on your secure server.
The new feature is aimed at helping the developer community updated about billing status. Sometimes auto-renewal fails due to errors in the app or for some other reasons. In such a scenario, the developer can immediately swing into action and work on resolving the issue. Furthermore, the developers are alerted when the billing issue is resolved. The server-to-server notification will help app developers improve their retention rate and ensure that seamless auto-renewals.
