Update In-App Items


After registering a consumable or non-consumable item, you can update its title, description, standard price, local price, and whether or not to apply phone bill payment when the item's app has not yet been submitted for validation testing or when the app is being distributed.

Auto-recurring subscription (ARS) items cannot be updated. However, you can delete an existing ARS item and upload an updated version of it.

Note: We recommend that after updating in-app items, you block users from running the app while you test and complete the update. If you also make a major or IAP-related update of the app, we recommend that you require all users to update to the new app version after the blockage.

To update an in-app item for an IAP-integrated app:

  • After some actions, a notice popup window is displayed that requires clicking a button, such as OK. Popup steps are not indicated in this procedure.

  • To see help text, hover the mouse over a field's Comments icon Comments_Icon.png, click Show Tip: On (info tips for all fields), or toggle-click an individual field's Info Tip icon Info_Icon.png  

  1. Log in to Samsung Seller Office through your commercial seller account.
  2. Select your app's in-app item:
    1. In the menu bar, click Applications > My applications

    2. If your app has not been submitted for validation, click your app's Registering or Re-registering.


    3. If your app has been approved for distribution, click your app's Update or Updating.

    4. Click your app's In App Purchase menu tab:
    5. Navigate to the in-app item and click its Item Title.
  3. Update in-app item information:
    1. In the list of in-app items, locate the item to be updated and click its Item Title.
    2. Update the following field entries:
      Note: Enter all information in English. Item ID and Item Type cannot be updated.

Item Title

Name of the in-app item (English letters, Korean letters, numbers, spaces, and certain special characters [period, dash, and underscore], fewer than 100 bytes) unique among all item names in the item group.

Users can see the item title in the Samsung Unified Payment window when they purchase in-app items.



Brief explanation of the item



The standard price (USD 0 to USD 400) of the in-app item.

Note: For an autorecurring subscription item, a value of 0 (zero) cannot be entered, and its standard price cannot be updated after the item is registered.

After you enter a value, click Apply to set the value.


  1. For each country, manage your in-app item's local price, and either enable or do not enable user payment via their phone bill.

Caution: Ensure each country has a suitable local price. Each local price will only be in effect after your app and the in-app item are certified for distribution.

Note:  For each country, you have the following options:

  • Do not enable phone bill payment and either:
    • Accept the default local price (based on the standard price and the exchange rate or a price set by country price requirements).
    • Enter your own local price (subject to country price requirements).
  • Enable phone bill payment (when available) and either:
    • Accept the default local price (which is the phone bill nearest to the default local price).
    • Select another available phone bill price as the local price.

Note:   For details about the payment method applied to each country, see the Seller Office Terms and Conditions link at the bottom of the web page.

  1. Click the unfold button on the right hand side of the Price by each country title.
  2. When not enabling phone bill payment:
    1. Review the local price for the country.
    2. If the default local price is not suitable, enter a suitable price.
      Note: If your new price is below the country minimum, the price will be changed to the minimum.
      If a notice is displayed that your entry does not meet country price requirements, either accept the automatically entered price or enter another price.
    3. Go to step 3.d. to complete the registration of the in-app item.
  3. To enable phone bill payment:
    1. Checkmark Payment Method: Phone Bill (Premium SMS/Carrier Billing) 
    2. For each country in which to make phone bill payment available:


      1. Checkmark Apply Phone Bill.
      2. Review the new default local price, which is the phone bill price nearest to the original default local price.
      3. Review the equivalent USD price.
      4. If either the new default local price or the USD price is not suitable, select a suitable phone bill price.


  1. Click Save.
