In-App purchase switch from consumable to Entitlement?

Hello Is there a way to switch an existing consumable item to entitled? Earlier it was set to consumable for some reason, but many users prefer entitled over consumable. So is there a way to switch it and resolve their problem without causing problems to existing users? Earlier I got reference via another thread with following steps 1) Move Consumable IAP Items to Pending state. 2) Change the SKU of consumable IAP Items to some other name. 3) Create new IAP Items with original SKU of the right type. So with above said steps does it guarantee retrieval of receipt for already purchased users in-case of device factory reset? Note that existing users purchased a Consumable item, and hence there was no account info in place. So how does migration to Entitlement account for existing users? Regards, ARuppin

Hi, Thank you for your post. You can change an existing set of consumables to entitlements by following the steps mentioned by you in this forum thread . As per the IAP items behavior, consumable items information is stored on the device and clearing data or uninstalling the app would clear the consumable item. Hence we cannot restore consumable items once removed from device.
