A store's status is either active or pending contract addition. By default, only active stores are displayed in Organization Settings. To review pending stores, click Pending.
Active stores are fully activated stores.
An active store isn't necessarily open to the public. Some setup for a new store might be required, such as adding products, staff, or sales channels.
|Pending contract addition||
Pending stores are newly created stores that might exceed your contract limits.
Pending stores become active after the request has been processed by Shopify and you've approved any additional charges.
A store's type is its general purpose. The type might affect the billing or setup of the store, but won't restrict its features or capabilities.
|Production store||A production store is a store created to sell your products.|
|Development||A development store created to let merchants experiment with themes, branding, or custom coding. Development stores aren't intended for selling products.|
