Hi! I was hoping to find an answer here as we haven't figured it out and tried to contact Shopify support but they also could not solve that and told us to ask in the forum.

We're going to make LAI a partner-friendly app https://apps.shopify.com/collections/partner-friendly-apps. It will be free to test in development stores. Regular charges will apply once the store is switched over to a paid plan. That's why we need a notification like this once the store has started using a Shopify plan.

How can we do that? We truly hope that you guys can help us out!

This is an app onboarding flow you want to handle with transactional emails.

Where and how apps can surface information, or actions , is extremely limited on purpose and unlikely to change in the merchant admin via extension points.

App extensions allow apps to add features to certain defined areas of several Shopify user interfaces. Those defined areas are called “extension points.”

I haven’t tested this myself yet, but we are planning to do this too so it’s on the product backlog.

 My initial thought would be to subscribe to the   SHOP_UPDATE webhook for each store that installs your app  I suspect it will be triggered on a plan change, so you just need to then write the logic to parse the notification and see if it is related to the shop plan.

I’ve pasted the URL to the docs below.

Let us know hi you go!

Hey @PaulNewton  Can the extension you mentioned before do this? Send a notification like this on the merchant's admin dashboard "Loox - Photo Reviews is ready for use....."

I would really appreciate your help because our developer has figured it out for days. I'll surely mark your answer as solution if it works.  Have a nice day!

No, the extension points in the documentation I linked to are predefined and specific.
