I would like to connect Shopify via a private app. However, when I click on 

App development - Create an app
I do not find where to put "Emergency developer email" . 


Why my box message looks different ??


Thank you for help

Hi there! 

We have replaced Private Apps with Merchant Custom Apps. Merchant Custom Apps serve much of the same purpose as Private Apps.

Merchant Custom Apps will be authenticated differently, using an X-Access-Token, you can read more about that here.

You can update the email of the app developer for a Merchant Custom App in App Development > App Settings > App Information!

To learn more visit the Shopify Help Center or the Community Blog.
