Have had inquiries about getting a license to be able to use my fonts on a customers Shopify website. I'm not very familiar with the platform and requirements, so I was curious if others are and how you direct the customer?

Is it just a Webfont license that's needed, or does it start to fall into the App category somehow, or something else? (To clarify: It's not Shopify themselves asking to make it part of their service or platform.)

I found this upon a quick search, for whatever it's worth:

    It's just an online store if the fonts aren't being used to customize anything

    Thanks. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something that others have run into.

    From my point of view this needs a website embedding license that's usually based on pageview.
