Project description

### Sales Channel

- Do we need to turn our iOS mobile app into a sales channel?

- How do I turn my iOS app into a sales channel?

- We don't need this app to be public​,​ does it still have to be approved by Shopify?

- Only public apps can take payments

- We don't want or need our app to be public

- Backend

- Is it better we maintain a backend that communicates with Shopify and exposes data to our iOS app? all info in the app is info regarding products in Shopify.

- Is it better our iOS app directly consumes Storefront and Checkout APIs?

- Is there a recommend hybrid approach? For example: iOS consuming Storefront API directly and Checkout API being served by our private backend

### Sales Channel Alternatives

- Can we process payments without our iOS app being a sales channel?

Adding additional fields of information to products

- Manufacturer

- Brand

- Supplier

- Shop Name

- Season - Summer '19

- etc

One of the options is using [custom themes](https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Design/Product-pages-Get-customization-information-for-products/m-p/616525?utm_campaign=Guru_%20_Ask&utm_medium=Forum&utm_source=Social).

If we use custom themes​,​ is this data available through **Storefront API**?

Is there any other way to define custom data fields and access this data from **iOS Buy SDK**?

### SEO

Is it possible to improve SEO performance for a shop that is almost exclusively accessed through a native mobile app?

### Similar Products

Shopify offers in its online store sales channel a widget with similar products for cross selling.

Is this data available through API? Which API?
