No you don’t. I am an official Shopify Partner. This means I can build an unlimited number of Shopify development stores under my partner account. When the store is ready to go live, ownership is transferred to you. At this point (when your store is ready to start selling) you will need to choose a Shopify monthly plan.

All plans include fast, managed online store hosting.
