Storefront API shows error about checkout disabled

Hey,

 

I am using Storefront API to enable Discount Coupon Application using the following SDK - https://shopify.github.io/js-buy-sdk/#creating-a-checkout

But, when creating a checkout programatically, it is showing error as following - [{"message":"Checkouts are disabled for your shop.","locations":[{"line":1,"column":3094}],"path":["checkoutCreate"]}]

I already have enabled the Bogus Payment Gateway on our development server, but it still shows error that the checkout is disabled.

 

Can someone please guide me how can I enable the checkout on the development store ?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Folks!

 

Just following up on my earlier message - does anyone came across this particular issue and have any solution for this ?

 

Looking forward to a positive response.

Same problem here.

Support told me that development stores don't have access to checkouts (checkoutCreate, client.checkout.create). I hope this isn't true considering it's not stated clearly in any of the docs I've read and I need to test checkouts to finish this project. If somebody with more experience would be willing clarify it'd be much appreciated!

I think this discussion confirms it, you have to switch over to a paid plan to enable checkouts.

Unfortunate, considering checkouts are the de facto way to handle  users' sessions (adding items, removing items, redirecting to Shopify webURL at checkout)
