Restore App to Full Version

Restoring the app to the full version is only applicable to users who purchased the app before August 2016.
It is used when the user has subscribed to the in-app purchase and wishes to activate it again.
Before restoration, the app is only limited to 30 items and 10 transactions per day.
To restore, tap on "Restore" and the user will be asked to key in the Apple ID and password as shown below.
