We've made updates to the Theme Store requirements, in relation to the prohibited use of externally hosted scripts, and code which interferes with native Shopify functionality. These requirements are contained within Section 7, Consistency and functionality and inform that:
- Scripts included in theme code must be hosted on Shopify's servers, with the exception of approved third-party libraries.
These requirements are to ensure all themes in the Shopify Theme Store are secure, reliable, performant, and maintain a consistent user experience.
The new requirements can be viewed on Shopify.dev.
