Free to install

Select this option if you won't charge the merchant anything for installing the app.

Recurring charge

Select this option if you will charge the merchant each month (every 30 days) that they have the app installed. If you select this option, then you'll be able to add information about the different monthly plans that you offer.

One-time payment

Select this option if you will charge the merchant a single fee for installing the app.

Apps with only a free plan

You can have a maximum of one free plan. If your app has only one plan for the entire app, and that plan is free, then that plan can't be listed as a recurring charge. For this type of a pricing model, select Free to install as your primary billing method.

Apps with free and paid plans

If you have more than one plan and one of them is free, select Recurring charge as your primary billing method, then specify one of your plans as Free in the Plan pricing section.

Set up an app subscription plan with recurring charges

To describe how merchants will be charged for using your app:

  1. Enter the length of the free trial period, after which you will begin to charge for the app. If the free trial length is 0 days, then charges begin immediately. When you choose the length of the free trial period, make sure that it's enough time (at least 14 days) for the merchant to try your app.
  2. Enter the details of your recurring plans. For each plan, specify whether it is free or billed monthly.
  • If your app charges the merchant monthly, then select Monthly charge and enter the amount that the merchant will be charged every 30-day billing cycle. (Please note you must charge at least $1 for a monthly charge plan).
  • In the Plan details section, enter a name for the plan and a list of features that it includes(Optional). Enter each feature on a separate line, without any bullet points or leading characters. Bullet points will be added when the feature list is rendered in the app listing.
  • If you want to add another plan, then click Add plan.
  • If you want to delete plan, then click Delete.
  • The app listing lets you describe up to four pricing plans for your app.

Plans will be displayed from lowest price to highest price in your app listing, regardless of the order in which you specify the plans.

App billing

Supported billing models

The Billing API lets you create different app-billing models based on one-time app purchases or recurring app purchases.

One-time app purchases

A one-time app purchase creates a single charge for the merchant, which needs to be approved by the merchant.

  • Charge once for your app: You charge a merchant one time for the app, making the app always available after the payment. For example, you could sell an email template app as a one-time purchase.

For more information about one-time app purchases, refer to Create one-time app purchases.

Recurring app purchases

Recurring app charges require the merchant to pay for the app continuously over time, or pay by the usage of the app. Each recurring charge needs to be approved by the merchant.

  • Recurring charges based on time: Create a fixed value, a 30-day, or an annual recurring charge. This type of charge is useful for apps that provide a continuing service to merchants.
  • Upgrading and downgrading apps:Merchants are permitted to have only one subscription to your app at a time. This means that, if a merchant upgrades or downgrades your app, then the old subscription is canceled and replaced with a new subscription. When the merchant upgrades or downgrades the app, the new subscription takes the same 30-day app billing cycle as the previous purchase. This also applies when a merchant uninstalls or reinstalls an app.
    • Upgrading an app:
    • When a merchant upgrades to a more expensive subscription, merchants are required to pay a fee for upgrading the remaining days in the current billing cycle (the remaining days in the cycle / the price difference between the plans). For example, if a merchant has 5 days left in current billing cycle and wants to upgrade to a $20 USD more expensive plan, the merchant will be charged $3.33 USD (5/30days*$20 USD).
      And at the end of the current cycle (i.e. at the beginning of the next cycle), the merchant will be billed at the new package price.

      Note

      If a merchant upgrades a plan on the last day of a cycle or if the price difference between plans is less than $1, we will not charge the price difference.
      This is what the bill looks like:

    • Downgrading an app:When a merchant downgrades to a less expensive subscription, the new subscription will start immediately. (i.e. at the beginning of the next cycle)

Free trials

Free trials allow merchants to experiment with apps before they commit to paying for the app. Free trials delay the start of an app's billing cycle by the number of days specified. Free trials are available only to merchants if they agree to a new subscription, and cannot be added to existing subscriptions.
