Custom App Merchant install link does not work

Solved

Shopify recently changed the whole way apps are created in partners.shopify.com. Previously, I could create an app in there and use a link akin to https://[YOUR_SHOP_NAME].myshopify.com/admin/oauth/authorize?client_id=[YOUR_API_KEY]&scope=unauthenticated_read_content&redirect_uri=[YOUR_REDIRECT_URL] to install the app on a store. Now Shopify wants me to use a "Merchant Install Link" and it does not work. It sends me to the Redirect URL after I click it, as it should, but the custom app does not appear installed in the store's https://[YOUR_SHOP_NAME].myshopify.com/admin/apps section. I think this is a problem with the update which Shopify made to their interface. How can I install my apps now? They are just for one store, not to be published or anything. I tried to install apps on multiple stores now, but nothing is working.

Did you figure it out? Shopify support doesn't seem to understand what is going on. They keep telling me the app needs 100 installs for their developers to look at it, and I keep telling them the problem is not with the app, it's with the updates they made to the platform.

I solved the problem by myself.
Follow the tutorials: Build a Shopify App with Node.js and React

After I run "npm run dev", Then use the merchant install link. It finally works.

Hey @dan1000,

 

Were you able to make progress on this one? If not, are you able to provide the app id?
