New City and State/Province Fields in Sales Reports

November 9, 2020

To further protect our users’ privacy, we replaced “Postal Code” with “City” and “State Province” fields in all applicable sales reports. The “City” field groups several smaller cities together to form a larger geographic area, similar to metropolitan areas.

  • City: The rolled-up city in which a transaction was reported to Apple.
  • State Province: The state or province of the city, used for disambiguation of cities with similar names.

If you use Reporter to automate report downloads, any impacted report will receive a new version to be specified in the command line, and can be found in the Reporter User Guide. The previous version containing Postal Code will run in parallel until November 14, 2020.
