App submission rejected

Reasons for refusal:

Product sourcing applications must connect to a platform that is not a hosted Shopify Store. It appears you're connecting to https://eggbuy.net/

 

I can't understand the meaning

Hi @eggbuy 

Without being able to access the app details or knowing what the app's function is, I can only make an educated guess as to what the rejection message is pointing to.

Is your app designed for product sourcing/drop shipping? If yes, where are the products that your app offers being hosted for import? If those products are being imported from a Shopify store, that will not work for this app design. 

Dropshipping sources must be hosted OUTSIDE of Shopify and allow for Shopify merchants to bring those products into their store. I believe this is related to this requirement in our developer documentation: Requirements for public apps on Shopify | Section 1.7

It's for drop shipping design, I can't find a place to connect https://eggbuy.net/
and I can't find that doesn't meet this requirement for Section 1.7

The following figure is our desig

Thank you for following up with me on this. Can you help by answering these questions for me?

Is the website www.Eggbuy.net hosted on Shopify? 

Is the website www.Eggbuy.net hosting the products for your app?

If you answer YES to both of those questions then that is against the requirements for the app. The website hosting the products CANNOT be hosted on Shopify.

Okay! Thanks for confirming that. 

What platform is the website that hosts your products then? As that seems to be the issue with app application.
