Creating a new App

To create a new app, click on the Add new application in the drop down menu of the top-left corner

If you have 2 different environments (e.g. : staging & production), you should create 2 different Applications in the Purchasely Console and use 2 different API keys

We advise you to start creating a staging application first (i.e. a mobile application plugged to a staging environment) to perform your first tests.

This new application must be configured with a set of parameters among 3 different stages. All these parameters can be modified after the application has been created.

1. Create a new application

The mandatory parameters are :

  • Name * : the name of the application as it will be display in the Purchasely Console

  • The default langage * : this will define which language shall be used when the language on a user device is not supported by the application

2. Plug it with .the stores

You can add up to 4 different stores. Each store step by step configuration is explained below, in dedicated sections.

3. Plug it with your backend

In this section, you can plug the Purchasely Cloud Platform with your own backend through a server-to-server integration. This will allow to have your backend notified through a webhook, when a subscription event is received from the stores.

This allows your app to open accesses to the relevant features & contents when a user purchases a specific product or subscription... ... and to close the accesses when the user subscription is expired or the when the user gets refund. Opening / closing accesses and managing entitlements is the responsibility of your own backend.

Fill in the Client webhook URL with the endpoint URL on your own backend where you want to receive the subscription events.

If your Client Webhook is not ready when you make your configuration, we advise you to use the following value: https://httpstat.us/200

This value will simulate a HTTP 200 response code allowing the Purchasely Cloud Platform to consider that the new subscription has been duly acknowledged by the Client Backend.

Every message send by Purchasely in the webhook is signed using a Client shared secret.

Refer to Webhook documentation to know more.
