Since the version 10.13 of macOS, some users face the App Store issue when the In-App Purchase option doesn’t work. Also, this may happen due to other reasons, for example, when a user switches the country of the App Store or uses different Apple accounts while purchasing any application. In this article, you will learn how to solve the issue when you want to upgrade App Cleaner & Uninstaller to the Pro version. 

  • First, make sure you have enough money to make a purchase. For this, launch App Store, go to your Account section → Payment Information and check what type of payment you registered there.
  • Then make sure you’re making your in-App purchase with the same Apple ID you used to download the application.

If the first suggestion didn’t help, go to the next steps:

    1. Sign out from your account and quit the App Store app.
