    Pros: 

    Integration is so simple that you doubt if it's complete

    Cons: 

    Integration is too simple – you doubt if it's complete ;-)

    The product itself just works. Did I mention already you might find yourself asking "is it just that?"

    What is actually exceptional is the support. Well, it's not only support, it's more like care. We have tiny little niche app and had some issues with first Apple review and Jacob did everything he could to explain and validate all the technical issues we could face (including app setup in App Store and code review) and all the responses were almost instant (minus his sleeping time). I hope this won't pile up your inbox with too many questions, Jacob :-)

    So, I do recommend the product, but it would have probably 1/4 of value without such a great team behind it.

    Pros: 

    Easy to implement, saves a lot of time and resources, good dashboard.

    Cons: 

    None.

    We've used RevenueCat to implement our subscriptions for our Design+Code iOS app and it was a blessing for us. We saved a ton of time, resources and received valuable advice/expertise. The system takes care of all the edge cases, which is so crucial for not losing customers. Building your own in-app purchases feature is super hard to get right, so this is hugely recommended!

Hello Hunters, While working on Elevate (2014 App of the Year), Miguel and I spent the better part of 2 years fighting with our subscription infrastructure and it distracted us from the core product. We built RevenueCat to solve this problem for all developers. Right now we have a cross-platform SDK to help you get up and running fast and some cool charting similar to ChartMogul or Baremetrics. We plan on making RevenueCat a full platform for managing and monetizing your subscription apps. Hit me with your feedback, questions and FUD! Also, let me know if there is a niche cross-platform mobile framework you wish we supported and we'll add it to the list. Cordova and Ionic are already on our roadmap. P.S. Use the code PRODUCTCAT to get 1 month of our charting plan for free.

Man, I wish we had this at one of my last companies (cross-platform subscription mobile app). What if we already have a backend? Do you guys have an API?

@williamsulinski We have a REST API that you can use to fetch a subscriber's status anytime you need it. We're working on adding some hooks so we can push you when status changes. Also, as long as you already have your receipts or tokens stored in your backend, it's possible to migrate to RevenueCat. You can email me jacob@revenuecat.com for details, we haven't quite automated the process yet.

Looks good. Not sure if I understood it completely, but how is it different than Stripe's subscription product?

@canolcer Stripe's subscription product cannot be used on the App Store for digital goods. Apple requires that you use in-app purchases for that. Our API make implementing those subscriptions easy.

@jeiting Ahh got it! I was suspecting that it was that, but wasn't immediately clear that that's your differentiating factor. Maybe could help to make that clearer on your landing page?
