Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is RevenueCat?

    RevenueCat is a mobile framework and backend that provides reliable and centralized handling of Apple and Google subscriptions.

  • How does it work?

    The Purchases SDK uploads your user's in-app purchase receipts to RevenueCat's servers. We verify them, store them, and ensure your user's subscription status is always kept up to date. This means you don't have to build a complicated backend with a whole mess of jobs to ensure subscription status is accurate.

  • Why do I need this?

    Implementing mobile subscriptions is hard. Apple and Google left out a missing layer when they designed them on top of their existing in-app purchase infrastructure. This leads to extended build-outs and buggy end user experiences. Using RevenueCat will save you time up front and give you peace of mind that your subscription system just works.

  • How much does it cost?

    RevenueCat is free to for basic tracking. We don't make money unless you make money. You can see the pricing here.

  • Why should I trust RevenueCat?

    Because we've done it before. Before RevenueCat Jacob and Miguel worked on Elevate, Apple's 2014 App of the Year, and experienced first hand the challenges of building a mobile subscription based business. They spent the better part of 2 years debugging, enhancing, a re-debugging all the moving parts of a good mobile subscriptions tracking backend. They brings that experience to RevenueCat.

  • What platforms are supported?

    We have support for iOS, Android, ReactNative, and Unity.
