Adding subscriptions to your app
Adding purchases and subscriptions to an app for the first time
RevenueCat provides a powerful (and open source) SDK that acts as a wrapper around Apple, Google, and Amazon's native APIs so you can set up subscriptions in hours, not months. Server-side receipt validation comes standard and subscriptions are automatically synced server-side so you can check the realtime subscription status of any or all of your subscribers at any time.
1. Create a new project
Before you can start building, sign up for a free account and set up your project in the RevenueCat dashboard. From there you'll get an API Key that you can use to start building.
2. Installing and set up the SDK
If you're launching a new app or adding subscriptions to your app for the first time you should install the appropriate SDK and follow the Mobile SDK guides to get set up and make your first purchase.
3. Explore the docs to learn what's possible
Making purchases is just the beginning. Explore the docs to learn about how you can:
