One thing I missed is that before you can create any In-App Purchases you need to sign a Paid Application Contract. See attached resources for more.

Create and Add your In-App Purchase ID

Next step is uploading your build to iTunes Connect.

Upload your build to iTunes Connect

After the build is uploaded it will be "processing" for a while. Till than we will set up everything in iTunes Connect in order for the app to be prepared for submission.

Finally we have come to the last part of submitting your app for Review.

Submit your app to the App store

After about 24-48 hours the Apple Review Team will review your app and hopefully make it "Ready for Sale".

Teacher. Coder. Coffee drinker. I'm never more than a few inches away from something with an  logo.

iOS10, SpriteKit and Swift 3 expert... iOS, watchOS, tvOS and macOS game developer.

Alex is a freelance developer since 2011. He is the owner of the iOS game development studio Rebeloper. Rebeloper is the testing ground for all of his "rebel ideas". He likes to experiment with cutting edge development tools and monetization techniques. Alex is also great in Photoshop, After Effects or almost anything you can throw at him. Recently he is a Swift 3 evangelist :)

Alex believes that you have to have 3 things in place to have a successful app business:

  • clean code
  • awesome design
  • cutting edge monetization

He teaches these three things on Udemy since mid 2012 as an established and respected instructor. Currently his courses have more than 10.000 students in total and counting.

Also he is the founder of an ambitious startup called: rebeloper. Here he teaches you how to make awesome iOS, watchOS, tvOS and macOS games that actually make you money.

"I was born to code, design & monetize. I do those every day in the name of rebeloper"
