Shopify Plus Partners can now create Shopify Plus sandbox stores

Effective May 16, 2018


Shopify Plus Partners can now create Shopify Plus sandbox stores. Sandbox stores includes most of the features that are available on the Shopify Plus plan so you can learn how to build on Shopify Plus and create demos for prospective merchants.

Shopify Plus sandbox stores let you:

  • make an unlimited number of test purchases through the bogus gateway payment provider.
  • process an unlimited number of test orders, and up to 500 real orders instead of 50.
  • create an unlimited number of unique products.
  • access Shopify Plus features in the admin, such as the Wholesale channel.
  • access Shopify Plus apps, such as Flow, Launchpad, and Transporter.
  • use Shopify Plus API call rates.
  • access custom checkouts. Ask your partner manager to enable this feature.
  • install paid apps. You need a card on file to install a paid app, but you will not be charged. Without a card, you can install only partner-friendly apps.

To learn more about our new Shopify Plus Partner sandbox stores, see our documentation.

If you are a Shopify Plus Partner, you'll be able to create sandbox stores in your Partner Dashboard in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for email updates.
