In order to be able to offer a fee-based edition through in-app purchases in your Kiosk-App for Apple iOS devices, an in-app purchase with iTunes Connect must be set up in advance.
Note: Before you can offer fee-based editions for Apple iOS devices, you must first activate the payment function in iTunes Connect.
To set up new in-app purchases
Log in at https://itunesconnect.apple.com with your user information.
Choose your app under "My Apps" and open the tab "In-App Purchases".
Press the "+" and create a new "Non-Consumable"
Enter the Reference Name, Product ID, Display Name, and Description for your product. The legend can be found below in the article. Put the checkmark in "Cleared for Sale".
For the review by Apple a screenshot in the dimensions 640x920 pixels (width x height) is necessary. You can, for example, use the cover for this purpose. If you create several products at once, you can use the same screenshot for several related products.
This screenshot is for testing purposes only and is not visible to anyone.
Save the settings and submit the in-app purchase to the Apple review ("Submit for Review").
Your in-app purchase will be reviewed by Apple and will be available as soon its status is "Approved".
Log in to your Pegasus Account with your login information and switch to the Edition Overview for your publication.
Open the dialog "Publish" for your edition and complete the "Individual Purchase Settings" with the price and the iTunes Connect Product ID of the in-app purchase you created.
