So, let's start and create your first product. It's a great idea to give the new product a simple and clear name. Like on a screen below.
New products support cross-platform apps – you can put both iOS/Android Product IDs in there. We strongly encourage you to use new products in your apps.
Doing that you can change it anytime in Apphud Product Hub. No app update required!
To edit existing product, select "Edit" in context menu.
If you have several permission groups, you can move a product to another group with the context menu "Move to group" option.
In case you have a bunch of products, it's easy to navigate through them. Use the search field to reach out required products.
In order to delete a product, select "Remove product" in the context menu.
It's strongly recommended to add all of your in-app purchases as products into Apphud. But in some (we hope, rare) cases these "orphaned" Product IDs may be found.
This can happen if you forget to add some new products to Apphud, or in case of old subscription renewals (we will get them in with Apple server notifications).
So, if you have such Product IDs, get rid of them as soon as possible and convert them to normal products.
Before the latest changes, we had a simple structure, reflecting iOS subscriptions hierarchy with particular product IDs (Store SKUs) and "subscription groups".
What is the main problem with that? It has few drawbacks:
Old groups were not very functional. Although we recommended you to match App Store subscriptions groups to these groups within Apphud, it does not add any specific functionality.
The second thing is old products. You had to hard-code specific product SKUs into your paywalls. So, it was impossible to change the products on the fly and run A/B-experiments.
