I'm just enquiring regarding if this is an allowed approach.
I want to build a custom app, using NextJS, that can charge customers directly using the Stripe API.
Shopify would be used purely as a CMS to manage products/inventory/orders. At no point would Shopify handle any transactions, meaning Shopify would not incur transaction fees.
Shopify & Stripe would be connected using custom Stripe Webhooks.
Here is an example flow:
Shopify is quite clear that you need to go through approval, etc to create a public app that takes custom payments.
But I have found no mention of anything to do with payments in a private app.
Is it possible to take payments directly with Stripe in a custom app, and use Shopify as a CMS (meaning Shopify would not incur transaction fees)?
Or does this violate any of Shopify's terms & conditions?
