I Purchase Donuts But They Didn’t Show Up!

If this has happened to you this is direct from the EA FAQ (https://help.ea.com/article/the-simpsons-tapped-out-faq)

1. How am I charged for donuts? 
You are billed/charged the same way for any other purchase on your iPhone/iPod (or Android Device); through your iTunes(/Play Store) account. If you have any billing disputes or questions, please contact Apple (or Google).
2. I purchased something in-game, but I cannot see it. What happened? 
In some you may need to exit the game and restart it to access your new content. If that doesn’t work, try turning off your device and restarting it.
3. I still can’t see my donuts. What next? 
You can visit the FAQ sections at http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/store/games/ and contact Apple for any billing issues. (Google https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/1267137?hl=en)

‘Are You Sure You Want To Do That?’ Setting the Confirm Donut Spend Button:

Ever hit a speed up task button by mistake? How about accidentally making a silly donut purchase in the store because you tapped the wrong thing?
No one is perfect, and neither is this game. From time to time you or the game are going to make a mistake. Usually those mistakes are quick fixes, but ones that really hurt are mistakes or errors made with donuts.
As the premium currency in the game errors that occur with donuts can not only cost you time but real world cash as well!
Here’s a way that you can prevent those “D’oh” moments in your game.
There’s a setting in the game now that sends a prompt to you for confirmation that you really want to make that donut purchase. Setting the Confirm Donut Spend button can really save you a lot of time and aggravation (not to mention cash!) when playing the game.

Update: The menus have been changed with the launch of Halloween 2014…below is the NEW way to set your Confirm Donut Spend button.

Here’s how you do it:

-From your Krustyland or Springfield Screen tap the Build Menu Button

2014-10-17 19.11.03

-When the store opens, tap the cog wheel in the top right corner:

2014-10-17 19.11.11

-Change the Confirm Donut Spend option to “Yes” and Close out of it:

2014-10-17 19.11.24

Now every time you make a donut purchase it will prompt you if you’re sure.
Note: If you play across multiple devices you have to change this setting on each device, not just the account.
