When is sales data available for new release?


as per title, when can I start checking sales reports for new releases?

Is data available straight away, next day or week?

Already stuffed it up my game, set yesterdays date thinking it will be better for US market as it is behind Australia, only to find out that it is best to set next day!

Now in both Australia and US it is like 5 page on new release, so nobody will see my game At least I'll learned the lesson for new game.

By the way, changing the date to 23 April now won't do any good I suspect?

Sales data is made available just after 11am UK Time most days, for the previous day. Go into iTunes connect and there is a Sales Figures area.

Sorry to hear about your bad release date, it happened to us on our first release too, not a good feeling and didn't get things off to as good a start as we hoped.

I think if there has been a sale on the game, setting the release date does nothing other than pull the game from the store. But when it is release again it still says that the release date is when the first sale was, unfortunatly. That was our experience anyway.
