About the app review process

When you submit an app, it goes through an app review process to make sure that it meets Shopify's requirements for safe, quality apps. Shopify's app requirements are the same for both fully visible and limited visibility public apps. If you’re planning to list your app on the Shopify App Store, then Shopify also reviews the content that you provided for your listing page.

To reduce the time it takes to review your app and help the process go smoothly, use tips outlined in the following sections as you build your app and draft your submission. To learn about the most common reasons why apps aren't accepted, refer to Common review problems.
