The app review process

When you submit an app to the Shopify App Store, Shopify reviews it to make sure it meets our app requirements.

If your app meets our requirements, then it will be considered for approval. If your app requires major changes that prevent us from reviewing your app, then you’ll receive an email titled Important: [Your app name] app review has been rejected that outlines the required changes. After you make the required changes to your app, you can resubmit it through your Partner Dashboard.

Our app requirements are the same for both listed and unlisted public apps. To learn about the most common reasons why apps aren't accepted, refer to Common app rejections.
