Things doesn’t show in Purchases

Things 3 and Things 2 are separate purchases. Learn more here.

If you don’t see Things in Purchases in the App Store, try these steps:

  1. Check the Apple ID you are signed it with. You must use the same Apple ID you used to purchase Things.
  2. Make sure you didn’t hide Things from your purchases. Here’s how to check for hidden purchases on your Mac or iOS devices.
  3. If you still don’t see Things, contact Apple Support. Apple handles all purchases from the App Store. They are the only ones who can check your purchase history.
