Aligning Product Id's

 Product Id's

Note: Some publisher's product ID's are automatically controlled by ZINIOpro and you don't need to manually control your product ID's.

If you are manually controlling your product ID's, then you will need to update the product ID in each section below. The product ID must be the same across all platforms in order for the individual purchase of an issue to work.

  • iTunes Product ID
You can create all your product ID's for an entire year. If you do this, you only have to remind yourself to create the product ID's for the next year at the end of every year.
Note: The screenshot you provide for review can be any cover image screenshot.
  1. Log in to iTunes Connect > My Apps. Select your app
  2. Choose features from the top menu
  3. Click on the "+" sign to add a new in-app purchase.

  5. Enter the following:
  • Reference Name: The name of the purchase such as: May 2028
  • Product ID: Follow a com.issuenumber.appname or whatever structure you had done before.
Note: You cannot have any uppercase letters or the product ID will not work in Google Play.
  • Cleared for Sale: This must be checked.
  • Pricing: Pick your price tier.
  • Content Hosting: Do not turn this on
  • Localizations: Add a Display Name and a Description. This appears in the wording when you buy an issue. Such as the 3/6/17 below.

  • Review Information: Take a picture of a cover of your magazine on an iPad. It can be any cover. This does not appear anywhere in your app or in iTunes. Upload the cover.
  • Save & Submit: This is at the top-right corner of the screen. Now you have the correct product ID set for iTunes
