I have an app that wil utilize in app purchases.
How is that handled during the approval proces, if at all?
Solved! Go to Solution.

It needs to work, but unsure exactly what it is you're asking. Could you clarify what your concerns are?

Do we need to provide any Fake pass-through codes to complete the transaction?
Is the App Tester actually going to buy the in-app product?
The in-app purchase or Digital Good in this application opens up Premium capabilities.
If nothing needs to be done for the approval process.. Great!

Nothing special needs to be done, just upload the app in the same state it needs to be in for launch (ex make sure all necessary Digital Goods exist).

I can't say what the actual testing process will consist of, but if testing in-app purchases is a part of it they should have a way of doing it without charge.

Well, this goes back to my original concern.
What needs to be dones to make it so they can make a purchase without charge?
I cannot make it without charge and have That approved.
Do I need to build in a circumvention process to handle the purchase just for the approval system?

As I mentioned earlier, nothing needs to be done on your side. There should be 0 concern with how the testing team will handle this.
If I get details on how this gets tested I will be sure to update the thread.

Just to clarify, and echo what Garett has mentioned - we have the ability to test transactions/in-app purchases on our end without the Vendor being notified or any effort on your end except submitting the app for us to review.
If we run into problems we'll reach out to you directly to discuss.

After the in-app purchase test is done, is it returned as a success and thus implementing whatever functions I have set to do after that?
In my case, a database submission will be made which grants the User remote server priveleges.
That is fine.
Except, for accounting purposes.
There is no actual monetary exchange but it will be regarded as though there was.
So, if the tester ( multiple testers?? ) test the in-app purchase and it triggers the database call and Fakes a monetary exchange has taken place.. I will need to handle that in some fasion.
I suppose I could delete the tester's accounts after the approval process and make any other nec. adjustments in the database but I would need to know to do so if indeed the above scenario is correct.
