Update on deprecation of unpublished apps

Shopify App Store

Action required

In May 2022, Shopify announced that unpublished apps would no longer be supported. To ensure merchant trust and security, all apps must now pass Shopify App Store review to guarantee the best app experience including branding, installation, onboarding, functionality, and quality. Developers with unpublished apps are required to take action by either converting them to public apps by meeting Shopify App Store requirements and submitting them to Shopify for review, or sunsetting their unpublished apps.

Impacted developers will receive an email outlining next steps, including the deadline to submit your apps for review. Please ensure your contact information is up to date.

If your unpublished apps have not been submitted for review or sunset by the deadline, these apps will have their API access revoked and will be uninstalled from all merchant stores. Developers will be notified at least 60 days prior to any changes being made.
