Get app conversions by channel

Use this method in the Microsoft Store analytics API to get aggregate conversions by channel for an application during a given date range and other optional filters.

  • A conversion means that a customer (signed in with a Microsoft account) has newly obtained a license to your app (whether you charged money or you've offered it for free).
  • The channel is the method in which a customer arrived at your app's listing page (for example, via the Store or a custom app promotion campaign).

This information is also available in the Acquisitions report in Partner Center.
