Hi, We're going to launch a big app update with new paid membership paywall (the app was free until then). I want to offer a cheaper price at launch, to be kind to my existing users and people joining in the first few weeks. I want these users to remain on this price plan forever (until they let their subscription expire). https://developer.apple.com/app-store/subscriptions/#providing-subscription-offers This page to me is so confusing, I can't manage to wrap my head around the options... I don't like options where they sign up and the first month is cheaper and then goes up. Here I don't think we're talking about Introductory offer, since I want them to remain on this price forever (until they let their subscription expire). I can imagine 2 ways to do what I want in the App Store. Which one makes most sense and is easiest to manage? A. Set a "default" price product, and set a "discounted" price product, for all the plan durations (1 month and 6 months, in my case). When I want to switch to the Default price, I just update my config in Adapty and the new "default" price shows up in Adapty (I may want to customize a bit the copy around the paywall, with remote config). B. Set my price products, for all the plan durations (1 month and 6 months, in my case). When I want to switch to a more expensive or any other price point, I just update the prices in the App Store for these products, and that's it (I may want to customize a bit the copy around the paywall, with remote config). What would you do? Or am I approaching this from the wrong angle, or am I leaving money on the table... Thanks for your advice & support! Paul

What do you recommend to set up cheaper in-app price tiers for less privileged regions of the world
First of all, thank you for making asking a question SO DARN EASY! life saver. I'm planning an app with content and a subscription to access. I know that 5$ might not feel the same in the US/UK or other regions of the world. What is a good strategy? There may be pros and cons, but if I look at an app like Jumbo, they have more than 10 monthly in-app tiers from 2,99 to 12,99. Is that what they're doing? Showing a different price tier based on country of the person on their paywall ?! One issue is that once I'm subscribed, I can go into my subscription settings and switch to a really cheap tier... And it also sounds like a nightmare to set up in the App Store. Would love best practices or advice. Thank you!
