Sales and Trends provides next-day sales and unit data so that you can measure the performance of your free or paid iOS, tvOS, and macOS apps, as well as any associated in-app purchases. Data in Sales and Trends is recorded when a customer initiates a transaction on the App Store.
Payments and Financial Reports provides information on final payments made to you based on closed transactions and finalized proceeds using the Apple fiscal calendar. Financial reports only include paid transactions where we are able to collect payment from the customer (see Schedule 2 of your Developer Agreement).
You may see differences between Sales and Trends reports and Payments and Financial Reports due to the following reasons:
Your reports include downloads of app updates. Updates are always free and these transactions will show Product Type Identifier 7. App sales will show Product Type Identifier 1 and can either be free (no proceeds) or paid. If your app isn't intended to be free but you see zero-proceeds transactions with Product Type Identifier 1, update the price of the app in My Apps.
Customers that paid for subscriptions may get a pro-rated or partial refund to factor in the content they’ve already received.
