A theme I started selling does not appear in the Theme Shop toggle
If a user has a version of LINE older than when the creator submitted the theme for review, it will not appear in the Theme Shop for that user.

E.g. A creator submitted and started selling a theme with LINE version 5.9, however the theme will not appear for users on LINE version 5.8. Those users will be able to purchase the theme if they update the app to version 5.9.
