Hi Vikash-Kr-Gh,


There's a couple of options you can use for this. One of the easiest ways to display custom content on a product page might be to use a theme app extension which allows your app to include a component (called an app block) on a specific page, that merchants can interact with via the theme editor. This doc on getting started with theme app extensions will be helpful. 


Alternatively you could work with app proxies to fetch and display data on a merchant's store from an external source.


I'd recommend checking out the docs linked and if you have more questions, let us know!

Hi @Liam,
I'm trying to publish a product to the online store after creating it. I'm trying it using the publishablePublish mutation but after I run this mutation I get the following error: Error: Your app doesn't have a publication for this shopthough when I check the newly created product in the admin panel I can see that it has been published to the online store. 

I searched if someone else faced similar issues and found out an accepted answer that suggests: The app needed storefront api access to set the product to Online Store. 

Now how can I give storefront api access to my app in this scenario?
