What better way to spend the weekend that getting to grips with the Store Kit!

However, when I try and add a test user I get an odd error message:

Could not convert Apple ID account to iTunes store account.
Upon which it seems to consume the email address but not actually create the test user!

:confused:

Anyone out there seen this before?

I have not seen this before.

You were attempting to create your test user in iTunes Connect, in the test user section, correct?

I've found IAP to easily be the most frustrating thing to make work when programming for the iPhone. Granted, I'm sure there are a few similarly difficult things I haven't attempted to implement yet.

Solution - use Safari!

It works just fine in Safari on an :apple:

All browsers are certainly NOT equal when it comes to iTunes Connect! Both Firefox and Chrome (on the PC) could not get past that form!

All smiles here as I just got IAP working - many thanks to Ray Wenderlich and his excellent AppRage tutorial.

I've created a test user on my iPhone running Mobile Safari before.

Also, does it work from Safari on a PC? I guess it doesn't matter.

Good to hear you've got it working now.
