Can't create a recurring_application_charge with unpublished app

Hi there,

 

I am having trouble create recurring_application_charge with an unpublished app on a development store. This is the error I get

 

It appears that this application is currently owned by a Shop. It must be migrated to the Shopify partners area before it can create charges with the API

 

What do I need to do to create a recurring_application_charge with an unpublished app on a development store? Thanks!

Hey @sengming

 

In order to create an application charge, your app will need to be using the public distribution type . It's not currently possible to switch an app between types, so if your app is currently a custom app, then you'll need to rebuilt it as a public draft app to be able to test the app billing on a development store. 

 

More information on our billing API documents here: https://shopify.dev/docs/apps/billing 

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the answer!

 

In that case, how should I test creating a recurring_application_charge before I make an app public?

Hi @sengming , you can add `"test": true` in your charges to have them go through as a test. 

https://shopify.dev/docs/apps/store/review/testing#testing-your-app-s-billing-system

One thing to keep in mind is that the testing is a bit limited. You can test all of the mutations to see how they work, but billing records are not actually created for test charges so you're limited in testing recurring behaviour as well as the behaviour around proration

Thanks for the answer Kyle! Unfortunately I am getting the same error when using `"test": true`

 

"It appears that this application is currently owned by a Shop. It must be migrated to the Shopify partners area before it can create charges with the API."

 

Am I doing something wrong?

 

Here are the details
