Working with apps

Apps cover a wide range of functionality and features, but there are basic actions that you can do with each of them.

If you need help with an app that you've installed in your Shopify admin, then see Getting support for apps.

Install an app

After you've found an app that you want to use, you need to add it to your store. If you're installing an app from the Shopify App Store, then click Add app on the app's listing page:

After you click Add app, you need to authorize the app in your Shopify admin.

If you're installing an app from a third-party developer's website, then click the related install link. After you click the install link, you need to authorize the app in your Shopify admin. At this step, you'll receive a warning that the app isn't from the Shopify App Store. This doesn't necessarily mean that the app isn't safe to use. However, the app has not been through the verification and approval process that's required for apps that are listed in the Shopify App Store.
