Payment verification

The payment verification provides veracity of in app purchase and protects your data from being distorted by fraud schemas.

myTracker can send a request for each tracked transaction to App Store and Google Play servers, you just need to add a key for payment verification — credentials. After adding credentials, you can build reports and view stats on both real payments and unverified purchases.

For payment verification:

  2. On the Payment Verification page, depending on the app OS:
