Memberships extension allows you to sell subscriptions from your native apps via the App Store (Apple) and Google Play Store to monetize your app.
To be able to set the extension, you must restrict at least 10 content items you wish to make inaccessible to non-subscribers.

If it's the first time you set restrictions for your app content and have not published your app with your subscriptions to the stores yet, you need to know that once the restrictions are applied to your content items, the content will only be accessible once the app has been published or updated to the stores.
Keep in mind that it usually takes a few days for the stores to review an app or an update.
During this time, the restricted content items won't be accessible for your users since they won't yet be able to subscribe to your app, but at the same time, you need restricted content for the stores to accept your app and enable the subscriptions.
