A Shopify account with a development store gives you the ability to test any themes or applications you create or create a store for a customer. You can utilize your Partner Dashboard to access any number of development stores as a Shopify Partner. They have no time restrictions, are free, and offer many of the same features as the Advanced Shopify plan. It is also possible to process an endless number of test transactions. But you cannot: till you use a paid schedule.

Place paid applications on your device (except for Partner-friendly apps). Create more than 10 private applications. It's critical to keep in mind that creating a development shop is a requirement for earning a recurring income share from any merchant you recommend. Visit Shopify's revenue sharing to learn more about the benefits of becoming a partner.
