Deceptive development practices are prohibited on Shopify's platform. Shopify expects app developers to act with integrity and in the best interests of app users. Developers should regularly review, and remain compliant with, the Partner Program Agreement and Shopify’s API Terms of Service.

The following sections describe some of the development practices that Shopify considers deceptive. Any developer that uses these practices, or any other practices considered by Shopify to be deceptive or harmful to merchants, is subject to Partner governance action.
