How to collect commission for sales channel app

11 0 2

Hi API guru,


Let's say the app uses checkout API or orders API, then what are the common ways to collect commissions?


The only official document I can find is to use billing API by creating usage records.

Are there any other ways charing merchants commissions?


Also let's say if the app does use billing API, what's the common pattern using it? Creating a usage record for every single order?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

A followup question is, if billing API is the only way automating commission charging process, is the 20% shopify platform fee fixed? Thanks.

Hey I'm 2 years down the road asking the same questions.  What did you find regarding how to best charge commissions in a sales channel app? The Billing API still lacks any clarity on the topic.


Thank you.
