Users who have purchased an In-App-Purchase before are not able to restore it on a new Mac.

Steps to Reproduce:
Download an app from the Mac App Store on a new computer, chose 'Restore Purchase' (default procedure), and nothing happens. No response from the App Store server.

Expected Results:
Should return 'SKPaymentTransactionStateRestored' in '- (void)paymentQueue:(SKPaymentQueue *)queue updatedTransactions:(NSArray *)transactions'. -- It did that before, but now it doesn't respond to '- (void) restoreCompletedTransactions' anymore.

Actual Results:
Waiting for a response forever. No answer.

Does not apply -- happens on Sierra and High Sierra, and for other developers, too: https://forums.tumult.com/t/hype-3-mac-app-store-version-restore-purchases-issue/12092

Started to happen two weeks ago. As this worked perfectly before, the problem seems to be with the App Store server.
