Live Store Testing

Hi everyone! 
I have an app under development, how can I install it to a live store (not a dev store) for testing purposes, and is there any possible way to do that at all?

I'm asking because the Shopify team is using a live test store for submitting the app.

Hi @Yuriy_Zhakun,

 

Thank you for getting in touch. Can you tell me a bit more about your app please, and if it's intended to be a public or a custom app? Have you been building and testing the app on a development store up to now?

Hi @Victor!

Yeah, it will be a public app. We were testing it on dev stores. That's OK. But I need it to get tested on a live store. I know that the Shopify team is using their live test store to get the app approved, but i couldn't find a way to install the app there (only dev store)

Hi @Yuriy_Zhakun,

 

Right, thank you. You would not be able to test your app on a live store as it needs to undergo a review first. Once the review is complete the app can be published and installed into live stores.

 

Development stores are designed to replicate live stores and should have the same functionalities when it comes to testing, however. You shouldn't need to have to test your app in a live store to confirm that it works before publication.

How can I test email marketing campaign? I am using MarketingActivities GraphQL API to fetch the active email marketing activities. But I can't seem to use Shopify Email app because it is development store.
