Introduction to Usage Charges

In the world of Shopify app development, tracking and understanding your revenue streams is crucial for growth and sustainability. One significant revenue stream that often goes overlooked is “Usage Charges.” These are charges that Shopify Developers can levy on their customers, usually as a result of usage charges. Unlike subscription fees that provide a steady income, usage charges are irregular and can significantly impact your revenue, especially for apps that offer cheaper plans but rely heavily on usage-based billing.

How We Calculate Usage Charges

Usage Charges represent the total value of all one-off payments made by stores for a specific day. This encompasses both one-time app sales and one-time usage charges.
