Checkout API - Use case limitations

Hi there

 

I'm building a new Checkout App that will have a specific UX/UI. The Checkout will be run on the Shopify Store or outside of the Shopify Store (such as a blog).

 

From a technical perspective, I can rely fully and exclusively on Shopify APIs using the Checkout API through the Sales Channel. That said, I am a little concerned by a possible limitation when it comes to Requirements for Public Apps. Section 1, point 6 outlines the following prohibited use case: Apps that process payments outside of Shopify's checkout - Shopify can't guarantee the safety or security of an order that has been placed through an offsite or third party checkout.

 

Since I am not a payment gateway and I will solely focus on the UX, do you see a conflict here?
