Request access to the post-purchase app extension

This tutorial covers how to request access to the post-purchase app extension.

Requirements

This guide assumes that you've created and registered a post-purchase app extension for your app.

To be approved for post-purchase app extension access, you need to build your app according to the post-purchase app extension requirements.

Review process

If you want to add the post-purchase app extension to a public or custom app, then you need to apply for access to the post-purchase extension using an unpublished app in a development store.

Public apps also need to be submitted for review in the Partner Dashboard. The review process is slightly different for existing apps and new apps.

For existing apps:

  • You need to test your app using an unpublished app in a development store.
  • To add the post-purchase app extension to a published app, you must submit the unpublished testing app for review in the Partner Dashboard.
  • If the new app meets the stated requirements, then it's approved and the post-purchase extension can be added to you existing published app.

For new apps:

  • You need to test your app using an unpublished app in a development store.
  • To add the post-purchase app extension to a published app, you must submit the unpublished testing app for review in the Partner Dashboard.
  • If the new app meets the stated requirements, it's approved and listed in the Shopify App Store.

Request access

To request access from a development store:

  1. From your Partner Dashboard, click Apps.
  2. Click the name of the app that you want to change.
  3. Click App setup.
  4. Scroll down to Post-purchase and click Request access.
  1. Fill out the request form with an explanation of the app.

You'll see a banner that your request is under review. The review process can take up to seven days.

After your request is approved, you're notified in the Partner Dashboard that your app has full access to the post-purchase extensions.
