With the launch of iOS 11, we’ve had to change our process on how we verify ownership of iOS apps for sale on Flippa. In the past, we had users update their app descriptions, but iOS 11 now prevents app descriptions from being updated without also updating the version of the app.
This means our prior way of verifying ownership of an iOS app is no longer effective. With that, we’ve rolled out a new process for verifying iOS app ownership.
To verify ownership of an iOS app when listing it for sale on Flippa, users will receive a unique verification token which needs to be added to the end of the support url.
For example, if the support url is google.com and the token is 12345, then the updated Support URL should be google.com?token=12345
Android app verification will remain the same, where you will be provided with a 10 digit verification code upon listing. As the app owner, you will be instructed to copy and paste this code into the app description on Google Play Store so it can be referenced. The verification will be done automatically and is usually the last step to be completed before your app listing can go live.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. Please feel free to leave a comment or email [email protected] with any questions!
