App Store Review

These are the two App Store Review Guidelines articles you have to know before using this framework:

3.1.1 In-App Purchase

  • Apps may use in-app purchase currencies to enable customers to β€œtip” digital content providers in the app.

3.2.1 Acceptable:

(vii) Apps may enable individual users to give a monetary gift to another individual without using in-app purchase, provided that (a) the gift is a completely optional choice by the giver, and (b) 100% of the funds go to the receiver of the gift. However, a gift that is connected to or associated at any point in time with receiving digital content or services must use in-app purchase.

Implement Buy Me a Coffee

  1. Import the BuyMeACoffee framework in your UIApplicationDelegate:
import BuyMeACoffee
  1. Configure the BMCManager shared instance with the username you've chosen on, typically in your app's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method:
BMCManager.shared.configure(username: "appcraftstudio")
  1. In the view controller, override the viewDidLoad method to set the presenting view controller of the BMCManager object.
BMCManager.shared.presentingViewController = self
// You can also set a custom thank you message
BMCManager.shared.thankYouMessage = "Thank you for supporting πŸŽ‰ App Craft Studio !"
  1. Add a BMCButton to your storyboard, XIB file, or instantiate it programmatically. To add the button to your storyboard or XIB file, add a View and set its custom class to BMCButton.
  2. Optional: If you want to customize the button, do the following:
let configuration = BMCButton.Configuration(color: .orange, font: .cookie)
let button = BMCButton(configuration: configuration)
// or set the burtton configuration later
button.configure(with: configuration)

(Optional) Configure In-App Purchase

Depending the legal receiver of the gift configured on Buy Me a Coffee, App Store reviewers can ask for In-App Purchase implementation.
If the following In-App Purchase if configured for your application, it will be displayed as primary flow when user tap on the BMCButton.

If the framework can't retrieve In-App Purchase informations, the web flow will be used as fallback.
