    If in-app products are created before granting users access or linking Google Cloud Project to the service account, it may cause problems with the receipt validation using Google Play Developer API. Google Play Developer API can return the following error "The current user has insufficient permissions to perform the requested operation."
    When encountering this issue, open the In-app products or Subscription tab respectively on the Google Play Console and make some updates. For example, edit the product description and save it.

Invalid store product identifiers

Apple StoreKit returns invalidProductIdentifiers and empty products response.
In this case, you will see this error in the log:
❌ Invalid store products identifiers: ("some_product_identifier", "some_other_product_identifier")
There are few reasons when this error can occur:

  1. Your in-app purchases are not configured correctly on the App Store Connect. Check the first point of this section.
  2. Your app bundle ID does not match the bundle ID from App Store Connect where purchases were created.
  3. You are using .storekit file which is configured with other IDs than you are trying to use.

Receipt validation error

Here are the most frequent reasons for SDK QNAPIErrorReceiptValidation error:

  • Provided shared secret can’t be used for validation. Please, make sure the shared secret you set in the Qonversion's settings dashboard is correct.
  • The receipt is corrupted.
  • The receipt was not found on the Apple server.
  • Apple Receipt Validation service is temporarily unavailable.

SkuDetails error

Here are the most frequent reasons for the SkuDetails error.

  1. Your in-app products are not configured correctly in Google Play Console. Once you have created a product, it has an Inactive status. You have to activate the product to purchase it. For more details, see our Android In-App Purchases Setup guide.
  2. Your app has an application ID different from the original APK uploaded to Google Play Console. An applicationIdSuffix for the debug buildType in the build.gradle file may also cause an error. When you use applicationIdSuffix you actually change your applicationId. As a result, Google Play Store treats your app as a completely different app.

Billing Unavailable error

The Billing service is unavailable on the device because it is not connected to any Google account at the moment. Here are the possible reasons:

  1. You are testing on an emulator. Please make sure that the emulator has the Play Store installed.
  2. You are not logged into a test device with a google account.

For more details see Android test devices.

Missing internet permission error

You should add the following string to your app AndroidManifest.xml:

Changes on Google Play Console have not applied to your in-app product
