Un-installing and Re-installing shopify app from custom application

Hi all,

We've recently developed shopify app which allows us to sync our platform's store products/designs and collections to Shopify store.

Furthermore, we are now looking to improve and handle app uninstallation and reinstallation scenarios. I know we've provision to uninstall/delete app from shopify app setup.

We now want to extend this feature to our platform, such that merchant/Seller who's associated with us (store setup on our platform) & have store setup on shopify and connected, can trigger this Delete/uninstall app request from our platform.

For eg, on our platform, Seller knows that ABC (store on our platform) is connected with XYZ (store on shopify). We now wanted to provide this app delete/uninstall feature here.

I already researched this but didn't found any concrete answers/solutions. Basically trying to look for API which can allow to perform this.


Looking forward to suggestions/solution.


Thanks in Advance.

Hi @monks24 ,


Regarding installation: Yes you can have your app be unlisted from the Shopify App Store and make it only available to be installed from your own App Store or Website. However your app will still have to go through the Shopify Review process.


Follow these guides for making a Public, Unlisted App that will be available to download outside of the Shopify App Store: 




For uninstallation, follow this guide for uninstalling your app on a merchant's store: https://shopify.dev/tutorials/uninstall-an-app-with-an-api-call
