Is Shopify checkout required as a sales channel?

I am trying to figure out if we have to use Shopify's checkout in our marketplace if we create a sales channel or if we can build a checkout system that then syncs with the clients' orders/inventory in Shopify. If there are any other requirements if we build our own, I'd appreciate that info also. Thanks.


The reason I ask is because we want to build specific multi-vendor checkout functionality (e.g., shop and add to cart across vendors, special shipping options by zip code, etc) that are not available using Shopify Checkout.

Hi @sherw,


As per our sales channel requirements documentation, your app would need to use the checkout API in order to be accepted to the app store. 


Let me know if you have any further questions!
