Purchase Transfers

Chariz can transfer purchases from another store, allowing a seamless migration of your packages to the platform. Currently, we support transfers from Cydia Store, Dynastic, Havoc, Packix, and Twickd.

Retrieving Purchase Lists

Refer to the instructions for the necessary platform to transfer your customers’ purchases to Chariz. If you have any questions, please contact us and we can help you with your transfers.

From Dynastic, Havoc, Packix, and Twickd

You’ll need to provide us with the email address associated with your account on the source platform.

We’ll get in touch with the source platform to inform them of your intent to transfer the product to Chariz. The source platform will ask for your confirmation to send purchaser details to Chariz. Once we are ready, we’ll release an update to your product on Chariz, begin the purchase transfer emails, and notify the older platform to remove old versions of your product.

From Cydia Store

Use the Cydia Store API to export a “roster” of purchases that need to be transferred.

  1. Visit Cydia Connect.

  2. Select My Products, then the product you want to transfer. Make a note of the product ID (this will be the last part of the URL component in your browser).

  3. Go back to the homepage and select API Credentials. Here you will find your Vendor ID and Secret Key. To get the actual key used with the Cydia API, you will need to compute the MD5 hash of these two values combined together. For example, with a vendor ID hbang and secret key abcdef1234567890abcdef1234567890, you can get the MD5 with:

    # On Linux, Cygwin, etc:
    echo -n 'hbangabcdef1234567890abcdef1234567890' | md5sum
    
    # On macOS:
    echo -n 'hbangabcdef1234567890abcdef1234567890' | md5
    

    WARNING

    The -n flag on echo is important. This prevents a newline from being inserted at the end, which would cause a different, incorrect MD5 to be computed.

  4. Finally, make a request to the Cydia API, filling in the [package] and [hash] sections with the appropriate values to retrieve the full list of purchases:

    curl 'https://cydia.saurik.com/api/roster?package=[package]&vendor-hash=[hash]' -o roster.txt
    

    This will write the full list of purchases to roster.txt. Compress this into a zip file and send it to our transfer email, transfer@chariz.com.
