How are downloads and purchases reported for universal apps?


  • I haven't been able to find any solid information about reporting of universal app downloads and purchases.

    For example, if a user buys an in-app item from my game's phone version, and then later downloads the same in-app item on the Windows 8 version (linked app, same in-app ID), how is that (if at all) reflected in my stats for in-app items in my Windows 8 app?

    The expected behaviour would be that the purchases only appear on the reports for the platform they were actually purchase via (for both purchases and in-app items), and not listed at all in the stats for the 'other' platform. Is this the case?

    Are there any plans to simply merge the reporting so that I can see my universal apps reported as a single app (with access to see the phone and Windows stats separately)?

    I'm a self-taught noob amateur. Please take this into account when responding to my posts or when taking advice from me.
