If your idea is to create an app like Adobe Spark which allows you to make images changes by giving you multiple templates to choose from an edit into, you should give your users the functionality to select their preferred category. Also, you can give them the search functionality to look at any specific functionality of your application, in case the list is extensive.
There should be a section within your application that has the list of every feature, functionality, and effect that you are planning to sell to the users. Ideally, it should be divided into sections of the different things that you are offering to your users simply for a clear & simplified UI.
In addition to the shop feature you should also integrate payment functionality in the app, giving your users the ease of purchasing the effect of their choice. To make it easy on your users, you should offer a variety of payment options like cards, online banking, or through platforms like PayPal & stripe.
