Can I run my frontend and backend on different hosts? (Shopify public app).

Hi everyone!

I'm currently working on my first Shopify app. For my current setup, I have a Vuejs frontend hosted on Netlify, and a Nestjs backend hosted on Heroku. This is working fine for development, but I'm worried that Shopify might reject this setup upon the submission of my application. Here's the current flow –

1. User clicks install on the app store
2. User is sent to then is redirected back to their Shopify admin to confirm install
3. Once auth is successful, server redirects the user to (the embedded app)

My application URL is:

My whitelisted redirection URLs are:

Does this setup pass submission guidelines? If not, could you please elaborate?
