The increasing popularity of mobile apps has led to the rise of In-app purchases (IAP) and In-app subscriptions (IAS). In addition to the discovery of a new customer base, it offers a new revenue stream with immense potential. However, this also means that you need to use each mobile app store's offering for selling subscriptions, and this can lead to fragmented data silos. This also means the dependence on the standalone solutions on offer from the app stores to manage your in-app purchases and recurring billing.
Our Mobile In-App Purchases feature is designed to unify the subscription management data into Chargebee by allowing you to connect your mobile app store accounts with your Chargebee site. This feature highlights the following benefits:
Chargebee currently supports integration with Apple's App Store and will shortly build an integration with the Google Play Store. The integration is designed by Chargebee to sync with your mobile app store and this integration involves connecting Chargebee with your app store account to utilize the in-app receipts to accomplish the following:
Create Customer, Plan, Subscription, Invoice and Transaction data as required
Keep the data up-to-date if server notifications are configured
Data flow into Chargebee's platform capabilities like reporting, APIs, webhooks, emails, etc.
