iOS In-App purchases on TestFlight come back as "Not Allowed".
We are currently finishing up a mobile app that is going on iOS App Store and Google Play. But, we are having an issue with the in-app purchasing. The project was compiled and submitted to TestFlight successfully. When pressing the button to make the in-app purchase we are given a status of, " Unknown", then when pressed again we receive, "Not Allowed". We have been researching and looking at forums for about 3 weeks now, and tried nearly everything we can muster. If anyone has a suggestion we would deeply appreciate it.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but I had the same error message and what I found that ended up fixing the problem was to modify the IOS.ini config file within the project. By default the bUsesStoreV2 is set to True; however, if you set this to False, and make sure everything is set up correctly in iTunes Connect, then it should work.

I was able to fix the issue of getting "Not allowed" in a TestFlight build by setting bUsesStoreV2 to false in IOSEngine.ini, and I also made sure to have the same settings in IOSEngine.ini, and the same modules included in my game's Build.cs file, as what is in Epic's Unreal Match 3 source code. You can download the Unreal Match 3 source code by searching for "Match 3" in the Learn tab in the Epic Launcher.
Unreal Match 3 is an iOS and Android game Epic made as a learning resource, and it includes examples of IAPs, Leaderboards, and Achievements.
