Updates to the App Design Guidelines


We've updated the App Design Guidelines for better clarity and coverage of the trickiest parts of app design. “Mandatory” and “Unacceptable” directives are now “Must Do” and “Do Not”, to clarify that all these directives must be met to qualify for Built for Shopify status.

All Built for Shopify applicants will be evaluated against the updated App Design Guidelines starting September 1, 2023.
