Apple is changing how subscriptions work on its App Store. Before, any lapse in payment could cut off the customer from being able to use the app’s subscription-based features and make it more difficult for the developer to reacquire that customer’s business in the future.
Now, developers will have the option to be offered a “grace period” for auto-renewable subscriptions which gives Apple more time to collect payment on the developer’s behalf.
The new Grace Period, which is opt-in, not opt-out on the developer’s part, is enabled from App Store Connect, where developers manage their apps.
Here, you can navigate to “My Apps,” then in the toolbar click Features –> In-App Purchases, and in the new Billing Grace Period section, click “Turn On.”
