Hi @tecoektamerai 

Hope you're having a great day!

According to this Shopify staff:

Public apps automatically have permission to use the Billing API and creating a recurring_application_charge for a merchant using your App.

Hi @Michal17 

I really hope you have a nice day too!!

Yes, In "custom shopify app" we can’t use billing API to charge merchants

Thank you for considering my question and reply to that.

After researching and thanks to your answer, I understand that the billing API cannot be used in a custom app (which is my case), so what would be the way to charge customers?

- Is there a way to receive recurring payments?
- Is the payment already something that I should do with the client?
- In case you stop paying, could I take away your access?

This is my first app and I would not like to make it public, since it is something that covers very specific customer problems, I do not see any sense in making it public. I really appreciate your answer.

Hello @filisantillan 

I hope you are well!!!

As long as I know we can not use " billing API" with "custom app".But we can create a "public app" rather than a "custom app "  http://prntscr.com/1lmbhuw  . And you can also test your "public app" by creating a shop from the shopify partner.  If your app works fine then you can publish it on shopify.
