What is the best way to setup the 'deliveryPolicy' for a plan selling digital products on a recurring basis? Since the merchant wont be shipping a product, I've tried simply removing the deliveryPolicy section from the 'sellingPlanToCreate' block of the 'sellingPlanGroupCreation' mutation but it fails.  What is the proper way to setup a selling plan for a non-physical product?

In Shopify, even if you are selling digital products, you're still required to set up a deliveryPolicy as it represents the frequency of the service or the delivery of digital content. It is not related to physical shipping of products.

 

In the case of digital products, you can set up the deliveryPolicy based on how often the customer should receive the digital content or service. You can follow the model that is shown in this tutorial

 

Hope this helps!
