Default IAP Currency, Consumables, Apple Review Questions

Hey guys,

We're working on our first IAP game (not our first iOS / Android game, just first IAP game).

I was wondering how exactly the submission process works for these In-Apps.
I have submitted the Currency purchases as consumables for review.

Now, my question is do I need to register the items that you purchase with this currency as well for review through Apple?

Example: I purchased 500 in game dollars. Now I want to use those to buy a sword.
Does that sword need to get a Product ID and all that set up to go through the In-App Review process as well?

Since the only "real" exchange of money is during the currency pack purchase, I wasn't clear.

Just to clarify, I'm using Unity and the Soomla SDK. A shot in the dark, but I thought I'd ask here anyway.

Cheers guys!

I looked more into Adding new In-App purchases through ItunesConnect and it seems as though you cannot have an IAP that is Free or worth any In-Game currency.

I believe this all needs to be handled on my end locally. If anyone has any more insight though that would be fantastic.

I've also wondered this. Can the restore feature simply restore the ingame currency?
