Scheduled Data Exports

👍Pro Integration

Scheduled data exports are available to all users signed up after September '23, the legacy Grow and Pro plans, and Enterprise plans. If you're on a legacy Free or Starter plan and want to access this integration, migrate to our new pricing via your billing settings.

RevenueCat can automatically send data deliveries of all of your apps' transaction data to various cloud storage providers. These are in the form of gzip compressed .csv files delivered daily.

Setup Instructions

📘

Customers on our Enterprise plan have the option to receive data exports more frequently than once per day when receiving new and updated transactions only. Contact your Customer Success Manager with questions, or visit our Pricing Page to learn more.

A note on transaction data

All transaction data is based on the store receipts that RevenueCat has received. Receipts often have inconsistencies and quirks which may need to be considered. For example:

  • The expiration date of a purchase can be before the purchase date. This is Google's way of invalidating a transaction, for example when Google is unable to bill a user some time after a subscription renews. This doesn’t occur on iOS.
  • If you migrated to RevenueCat, Google subscriptions that were expired for more then 60 days before being migrated will not have transaction histories in export files.
  • Apple and Google do not always provide the transaction price directly, so we rely on historical data & store APIs. This may result in inaccuracies if receipts were imported, or if a product price was increased before your App Store Connect API Key was added.
  • Renewal numbers start at 1, even for trials. Trial conversions increase the renewal number.
  • Data is pulled from a snapshot of the current receipt state, this means that the same transaction can be different from one delivery to another if something changed (e.g. due to a refund or billing issue). You should recompute metrics for past time periods periodically to take these changes into account. You can use the updated_at field to detect if a transaction may have changed since a prior export.
  • Data is up to date as of the export beginning to be generated. Thus, changes could occur between the start of an export generating and its delivery that would not be reflected in that export.

We try to normalize or at least annotate these quirks as much as possible, but by and large we consider receipts as the sources of truth, so any inconsistencies in the transaction data can always be traced back to the receipt.

📘

The date and time set in Next export start time via the dashboard is when the next export should start getting generated and is not when the next export should be delivered.

Sample queries for RevenueCat measures

You can use the following sample queries (written in Postgresql) as starting points for reproducing common RevenueCat measures.

-- Active Subscriptions as of a specified date

SELECT
COUNT(*)
FROM
[revenuecat_data_table]
WHERE date(effective_end_time) > [targeted_date]
AND date(start_time) <= [targeted_date]
AND is_trial_period = 'false'
AND DATE_DIFF('s', start_time, end_time)::float > 0)
AND ownership_type != 'FAMILY_SHARED'
AND store != 'promotional'
AND is_sandbox != 'true'

-- The RevenueCat Active Subscriptions chart excludes trials,
-- promotional transactions, and transactions resulting from family sharing
-- since they do not reflect auto-renewing future payments.

Sample queries for customized measures

Scheduled Data Exports are a powerful way to add your own customizations on top of the core measures provided by RevenueCat. Check out the following sample queries (written in Postgresql) for some ideas.

-- How many Active Subscriptions do I have with a given custom attribute value?

SELECT
COUNT(*)
FROM
[revenuecat_data_table] rc

WHERE date(effective_end_time) > [targeted_date]
AND date(start_time) <= [targeted_date]
AND is_trial_period = 'false'
AND DATE_DIFF('s', start_time, end_time)::float > 0)
AND ownership_type != 'FAMILY_SHARED'
AND store != 'promotional'
AND is_sandbox != 'true'
AND json_extract_path_text(custom_subscriber_attributes, '[custom_attribute_key].value') = [custom_attribute_value]
