How to pay for an app while creating a shop for a client

I'm creating the shop for one of my clients (as a freelancer).

For this project I need to use an app from shopify.

What would you suggest to me regarding the billing in order to use the app:

Should I link my own paypal account to shopify and delete it later or should I text my client to link his own paypal account/creditcard?

Hello @Sven1102 !


As you are creating a store for your client and need to add a paid app, you should ask your client to integrate their PayPal or credit card credentials in order to buy the app. If you attach yours then remove it and again integrate the client PayPal or credit card it may cause any error to your store.


As it is your client’s store and he is liable to pay, you should explain to them about the development process that the app needs to be added in the store for functionality purposes.


Hope this helps!

Thank you! I didn't know that it would cause trouble to change the paypal accounts later!
