One-time application charges

One-time application charges are exactly what they say they are: a one-time charge created and issued to the store owner for purchasing your app. After accepting the charge, the store owner is billed immediately on the credit card associated with their Shopify account. To receive payment for the charge, your app must activate the charge.
