I have an IOS app that is 99% of the way done. I'm not getting anywhere at all with my current developer on this issue and I need this resolved before I can go live obviously.
I will no longer work with anyone overseas. So just don't apply if you don't live in the United States.
I will report you as spam if you are NOT in the United States and you apply for this position.
I will only work with App Developers who LIVE AND WORK in the United States.
AND you must have strong app expertise and be well-versed in SUBSCRIPTION APPS WHICH AUTO RENEW.
This should be a quick and easy job for the RIGHT developer.
PLEASE READ ENTIRELY BEFORE APPLYING:
There are two issues I am having.
The first issue has to do with how the Auto Renewal Subscription is functioning.
CORRECT WAY: When I make the purchase with any user, using our SANDBOX iTunes ID ... the Testing works as it should. 30 days = 5 mins. It renews 5 times and then completely expires.
INCORRECT WAY: When I make the purchase with any user, using ANY OTHER iTunes ID, mine or another BETA TESTER, the testing does NOT work as it should. In other words, you don't get any auto renewal receipts. The app doesn't expire in 30 days or 5 minutes. It does seem to eventually expire (sooner than 30 days) but not in any particular time frame that we can absolutely count on or depend on. It's random.
We need to be able to have the app testing for Beta Testers work the same way it does for Sandbox ... so that when we go LIVE we know that the membership is going to expire / autorenew after every 30 days.
So that's the first issue ...
The second issue has to do with GIFTING THE MEMBERSHIP. Using the same iTunes ID ... if I already have a membership, and I buy this membership for a friend, it tells me ... "You are already Subscribed" Now, it DOES give my friend the membership ... but, that error message is confusing.
So, then my developer turned this into a NON-renewing CONSUMABLE product which expires after 30 days ... THAT doesn't work for me either.
I want to be able to with my iTunes ID have the ability to buy as many gift memberships as I want and have them uniquely renew as long as I choose to continue paying for it (AutoRenew).
So ... again ... this is an area that you need to bring some EXPERIENCE and EXPERTISE to. Not an area where you are going to play around and learn how to do this on my time.
So, ONLY apply for this if you have read this entirely and if you HAVE experience in the area of SUBSCRIPTIONS / AUTO RENEWING
Oh, and btw ... I have other apps that you will work on in the future if you are successful at fixing this issue.
