Superwall

👍Pro Integration

The Superwall integration is 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.

Superwall can be a helpful integration for optimizing pricing and understanding which paywalls are producing customers with the highest LTV. RevenueCat can automatically send billing, subscription, and revenue metrics to Superwall, a paywall SDK that lets you remotely update every aspect of your paywall.

With our Superwall integration, you can:

  • Create paywalls on-the-fly without shipping app updates
  • Determine which paywalls have high trial conversion rates
  • Find which product & paywall combinations have the highest LTVs
  • Offer discounts to users who churn

After you've set up the Purchases SDK and Superwall SDK to have the same user identity, you can "turn on" the integration from the RevenueCat dashboard.

  1. Navigate to your project in the RevenueCat dashboard and find the Integrations card in the left menu. Select + New

  1. Choose Superwall from the Integrations menu
