iOS Question

What should happen when non-purchased user press the restore purchase button in iOS?

My sandbox test account can purchase non-consumable item and restore it. Everything works. However, if the account have not purchased the item before, pressing the restore button does nothing. I see nothing in the debug panel. I'm expecting iOS to detect if a certain user has purchased the item or not, if not then display a message asking them to buy it. Does it work like that or the current behavior is totally acceptable?

Here is the restore purchase code (Swift) connecting to a button inside the main storyboard:

@IBAction func restoreButtonPressed(sender: UIButton) {
statusLabel.text = "Status: Restoring Purchase"

Other implemented methods include:

Works for normal purchase

func paymentQueue(queue: SKPaymentQueue!, updatedTransactions transactions: [AnyObject]!) {}

Works for normal restore

func paymentQueueRestoreCompletedTransactionsFinished(queue: SKPaymentQueue!) {}

Never see messages coming from this method before

func paymentQueue(queue: SKPaymentQueue!, restoreCompletedTransactionsFailedWithError error: NSError!) {}



You can check if the queue has any returned transactions, and if not it means that there are no purchases to restore:

func paymentQueueRestoreCompletedTransactionsFinished(queue: SKPaymentQueue!) {
  if queue.transactions.count == 0 {
    let alert = UIAlertView()
    alert.title = "Oops"
    alert.message = "There are no purchases to restore, please buy one"
