Please restore ASAP the 50 real orders limit for development stores created before March 30th 2020.
Also the message "This store can't accept real orders or real payments." should not be appearing on the payment page as long as the limit has not been reached yet.
Thanks for providing that context, @SOLIDIDEA. In this case, this is expected. You should have received notification via our Partners Newsletter recently, as well as a notification in your Partners dash. Since development stores are intended to be a testing environment for our partners to create stores before being transferred to merchants for launch, we've changed how orders are processed on dev stores.
You'll still be able to test orders though. Take a look at our documentation on testing orders in development stores here.
Let me know if you have any further questions!
Yeah, this is terrible. Short term profits are the focus instead of long term.
Get people hooked on shopify and loving it with the 50 purchase limit.
Devs will start looking elsewhere
I add paypal payment on my site but when I check out payment notice
This store can't accept real orders or real payments.
Hi, so after five months of struggle with my spare time that I take from my family to finish my store, I see that I can't test my payments. I get this "This store can't accept real orders or real payments." message, and after I click "Complete order" 2Checkout Convert Plus try to finish order spins me and return me to the same page. I have turned off the testing mode, and everything is the same. This Shopify's move is not cool at all, as if they don't care about users, just pay the monthly fee and then play with your Business. Well, I'm very disappointed.
