For the User:
-User should Create an Account so they can sign-in on any platform.
In your Admin Dashboard, you will see Unregistered User Profiles:
Simplified Subscriptions allow users to make a purchase without creating an account, which reduces friction during checkout. This has always been available in iOS and was added to Android. Previously, the user was not immediately added in your Dashboard, but we've changed that with Unregistered User Profiles.
For Users who Did Not Create an Account:
Existing: After they Restore Purchase, a Temporary Profile is created in your Dashboard.
New: After they Subscribe, a Temporary Profile is created in your Dashboard.
This allows you to view the user's payment, activity, and invoices.
If/When the user creates an account, their name and email are automatically updated in your dashboard.
If there's no option to Sign-In
-Delete/Reinstall app, then Sign-In
If Downloaded videos disappeared
If User has an Account and uses Restore Purchase instead of Sign-In:
-Receive Server Error Message
-Only option is Create New Account
-Delete, then Reinstall app
-Sign-In to your Account
After updating to the new version, user opens app and there's:
-No option to Sign-In/Restore Purchase
-Server/Subscription error message
If User has an Account/Subscription:
Delete, Reinstall app, then Sign-In.
If NO Account: Create a New Account.
