Creating a Shopify development store on your local machine involves a few steps. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Create a partner account: Visit the Shopify Partners website and sign up for a new account. You’ll need to provide some basic information about yourself or your business.
  2. Create a new development store: Once you have a partner account, you can create a new development store. Go to your partner dashboard, click on ‘Stores’ in the left-hand menu, then click ‘Add Store’. You’ll then need to fill in some details about the store, like its name and the password you want to use.
  3. Install Shopify CLI on Your Computer: Shopify CLI is a command-line interface tool that assists in generating and managing Shopify themes, apps, and custom storefronts.
