Plan-level trial configuration in the App Store app listing submission page

Shopify App Store

Action required

We are changing how trials can be configured on your app listing:

  • Trials will now be plan-level rather than app-level
  • Free plans can no longer have a trial associated with them as they should not be time bound
  • The change applies to apps with recurring monthly/annual subscription plans
  • The change does not impact apps that are listed as completely free, or free to install

This update gives you more control on how you market trials on the App Store.

Shopify has auto-filled the app-level trial data to each plan card based on the last app listing submission form configuration. Please update these default values in the app listing submission form if you have plans with different trial lengths.

There is a grace period before plan-level trial changes appear on Shopify App Store app listing pages, which will happen on April 29th. This grace period does not apply to other fields in your app listing submission form, which you can still edit and update in real-time.

To modify trial durations, manage your app’s listing in the Partners Dashboard under the Distribution tab. Learn more about configuring your app listing on
