Set Up Promotional Pricing

Promotional pricing provides you with a way to offer discounted prices for customers who purchase subscription in-app purchases (IAP). You can choose to target only lapsed customers who are resubscribing, or you can target both new and lapsed customers. You can configure promotional pricing on the Developer Console. To get started with promotional pricing, watch the video tutorial.

For more details on how to set up promotional pricing, follow the instructions on this page.

Promotional pricing terms

A promotional pricing offer is only applicable once per subscription product across all terms of that subscription IAP. You can extend promotional offers to customers under one of the following terms:

  • One time upfront discounted price for a period of n terms. The term can be different from the regular subscription term. For example, if a subscription regularly costs $9.99 per month, you can offer a one time discounted price of $19.99 for the first three months. See One time price durations for valid term values.
  • Recurring discounted payment for up to n terms. The term must be the same as the regular subscription term. For example, if a subscription regularly costs $9.99 per month, you can offer a recurring discount of $6.99 per month for the first three months.

For either offer, the customer defaults to the regular subscription IAP price after the promotional pricing term expires.

Promotional pricing customer segments

Promotional pricing also allows you to target a particular customer segment. Customer segments are classified as follows:

  • All customers. Includes new subscribing customers, and resubscribing customers who haven't previously enjoyed a promotion.
  • Lapsed customers. Includes only resubscribing customers. To be eligible for the promotion, a lapsed customer must not have had an active subscription to this product for a minimum period of time. You must configure a minimum lapsed period.
