In-App Item Purchase and Sales Statistics

You can review the number of in-app item purchases and sales revenue data, for various time periods in tables and graphs, for all or some of your Android and Gear apps that offer in-app items.

 

After you select the grouping of data (by country and/or app, and by time period) and the reporting period, you can review table and graph data of the number of in-app item purchases and their sales revenue. Data is reported for your free and paid apps that offer in-app items, and are currently in or were previously in normal or beta release. You can also generate a report spreadsheet.

One in-app item purchase (download) is always for one in-app item, at the item's local price at the time of purchase.

Note: Your earnings equal your sales revenue amounts minus applicable fees (including European Union VAT, Samsung and Payment Gateway commissions, and other taxes and fees). You can review your earnings amounts in the Accounting section summary and reports.
