Does the App support Family Sharing?

Currently, Membership Family Sharing is only for the Supermarket Swap App for those on Apple devices who are set up as a Family within their iTunes accounts.

This shared access will allow members of that same Family group to access the paid subscription across multiple devices. Data saved within the App, such as Meal Plans and Shopping Lists, will not transfer across devices. 

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at support@supermarketswap.com.au.  

Will my subscription still work if I swap from an Apple device to an Android device and vice versa?

When you change device types, your membership should still work on the new device. However, we recommending cancelling your subscription on your old device and signing up again on your new device once your subscription has expired. (If you cancel, your subscription will still be valid until it expires). This will allow you to manage your subscription with ease on your new device. If you don’t do this, you may need to log in online to access and make changes to your Subscription on your previous device type. 

If we can assist with this at any point or if you think your membership isn’t working as it should, please just contact us at support@supermarketswap.com.au
