Windows Store issues cause publishing delays for developers

The Windows Store is currently experiencing some issues, causing delays for developers looking to publish apps or create new in-app purchases. In addition to the publishing issues, some developers may experience problems viewing acquisition report data. Microsoft has alerted developers to each issue on the Windows Dev Center page with the following messages:

  • "We're currently experiencing some issues that are causing publishing delays. It may take several days before new app or IAP submission are visible in the Store. We're working on resolving this, and will remove this alert once the problem has been fixed."

  • "For some developers, the Acquisition report and/or IAP acquisition report (or APIs used to access those reports) may not currently show all data correctly. We're working on resolving this, and will remove this alert once the problem has been fixed."

It's unclear if these issues will bleed through in any way to the customer end of the store, but developers should definitely expect to experience some hiccups with publishing apps. We'll update this post once the issue has been resolved.
