IAP Free to Paid

Hello,

We would like to offer our in-app items for free during limited times and will sell it for 0.99 USD later. Is fine in terms of store policy?

If yes, on the developer console, can we change the "Are you charging for this consumable?" from "No, this is a free consumable" to "Yes, my base list price is..." without any issues? How long will it take if we want to change the price change?

Thank you!

Hi Levon,

Thank you for the info. I was not aware of the "Promotions" feature, it seems very useful and easy to manage the promotion, but I still have a few more queries regarding the promotion setup. Could you please confirm the process below is correct to achieve an example promotion plan?

<Plan>

An IAP release as free on 1 Jan 2017 until 15 Jan 2017 and then the price will be changed to 0.99€.

<Process on Developer Consoles>

- Submit an IAP with 0.99 € with the availability date as 1 Jan 2017 on Developer Console

- After the approval, create a campaign "Launch promotion" with the availability date from 1 Jan 2017 until 15 Jan with adjusted list price "0".

Or, is it possible to create a campaign against an IAP before the approval?

Lastly, if we would like to run the promotion on 1 Jan for example, when do I need to complete the promotion setup?

Thanks!

Eri
