  • Hello Alex,

    Since your existing users essentially already purchased your app, they already have a license and this should be handled by the store.

    However, if you wish to provide for an extra safeguard for your existing customers then you should use the store receipt to check the original purchase date (a free download is still considered a purchase) and set your app so that if the app was downloaded before the date you made the price change the user will have full access to your app.

  • Hi Eric.

    Thank you for your answer. The method that you mentioned is not available for Windows Phone. Could you tell me if i can check this at beta-store? Want to know it for sure before publishing at Windows Phone Store.

    Thank you!
