Changing app pricing after release

Hi guys,

 

we want to release an app for Shopify to test the waters. We don't want to charge our first wave of customers, so we want to start giving out the app for free. My question is, can we add a paid plan later down the road, and if there are any things I should before taking that path?

 

Thanks

Hey @YuriS,

 

Adding a paid plan later isn't uncommon. When you're ready, create a recurring application charge for merchants who wish to upgrade.

Hey @YuriS , I am considering doing the following for your app. Just wanted to know if you went this route and if there are any gotchas/lessons to consider before we take the same path. Was it simple to upgrade the merchants? The docs linked don't seem to explain what the experience would look like, if they are signed up with a free plan would they be prompted to upgrade once prices change, etc.. anything you figured out would be helpful. Thank you.
