Use ShortPoint on Site Collection App Catalogs for SharePoint on Office 365

With the new addition of App Catalog scope called Site Collection App catalog, tenant administrators now have the option to decide whether the SharePoint App will be made available for the entire tenant or scoped to a specific Site Collection. This also can help an organization to govern the permissions and scope it to limited site collection Apps only (For example, you have a department called Sales and you give sales department administrator rights to manage apps for sales department site collection only).

Here is a quick snap of how the site collection app catalogs will play role: 

Site collection app catalogs & Tenant App catalog

As you can see in above diagram, Add in / App or SPFx solutions can be directly uploaded to Tenant App Catalog and will be available across entire tenant site collection, or they can be uploaded to specific site collection app catalogs, and they will be made available to specific site collection only.
