How to request a refund for App Store purchases

If you made a purchase or subscription in error, you can request the transaction cancellation on the App Store and request a refund of the invested amount. This can especially happen due to access to your payment method by family members in the Family Sharing program.

Please keep in mind that due to Apple's privacy policy, no other person, even if they are part of the program, has access to your credit or debit card details. Therefore, they can only use the payment method for services offered by Apple.
