Adding a credti card to a dev site...

Hi All,

I am a Shopify Partner and have set up a temporary account so I can test the plugins and develop new layout before installing them on my client's live site. However, some plugins do not allow a free test option for the developer accounts, making it impossible to test them before installing them on the live site and performing the tests while live traffic is on the site!

I was wondering if there is any way to add a credit card to a development test site without having to sign-up for a Shopify plan which defeats the whole idea of having a development/staging site to test the things before moving them to the live site?

I appreciate any help in advance.

Hi, @ED49

Great question! It is not possible to add a credit card to a development store to allow you to test non-partner-approved apps. You will need to transition the store to a paid account should you need access to testing any apps that do not appear on this list. This restriction does not apply to private apps.
