Any disadvantages of going online with a teststore?

Hello all,

a friend suggested to open up a teststore as a shopify partner so I have enough time to work on the layout, functionality etc. before going online with my shop.

Last week I started a new account and I tried to transfer the development shop to the new account and go online. The problem is I can't do that. If I want the transfer the ownership under preferences shopify tells me I must do that on the dashboard of the partner site.
If I go there and try to transfer the ownership shopify tells me that I changed the emails address and password for this account (which is correct) and I have to login with the email and password when the partner account was created. When I try to do that -> user unkown.

So my question is: Are there any disadvantages of going online with the teststore? Of course I use our own domain, so the URL should be fine. It was a lot of work to build this store and I don't want to use any copy app for USD100+

Thanks for any help!

p.s. is there a possibility to open a support ticket?
