Hi @Gul1 

 

Development stores are not eligible for pricing promotions. The discounted price for new stores is so that they have time to learn and build their store before they need to launch. The low cost gives them the time they need before they have to move to a full pricing plan. You can find this information noted under the limitations of development stores in our Help Center: Creating development stores · Shopify Help Center.

 

It is also important to note that if you switch a development store to a paid plan, then you can't earn a recurring commission on that store. To comply with the Partner Program Agreement, you need to contact Partner Support to have the commission removed on the store. You can contact Partner Support through Shopify Help Center.

 

If you wish to take advantage of the discounted pricing plans you absolutely can, but you will need to create a new store account to do so.
