Billing for your app

The Billing API enables you to process charges through Shopify's merchant invoicing system, and provides the following benefits:

  • Charges appear directly on the merchant's Shopify invoice, so merchants don't have to enter their credit card information to pay for apps.
  • Apps that use Shopify's Billing API have higher free-to-paid conversion rates because charges originate directly from Shopify.
  • You automatically receive a revenue share from Shopify. Your share of the revenue is defined in the Shopify Partner revenue share agreement.
  • Shopify handles all chargebacks.

As a Partner, you choose your billing model and set your prices. Shopify collects the funds and makes sure you get paid.
