Sign up as a Lightspeed partner
To start developing a theme, you need to signup as a partner. Once you have registered and have gained approval from our business developers, you will receive your partner account details within 5 working days. As a partner you gain access to our partner dashboard where you can create apps, themes and sell your services to our customer base. A
test store will be created for you at the same time your partner account is created.
Read the documentation extensively
Our getting started guides provide you with all the necessary information for creating your theme.
Please note: Make sure to read the theme-checklist before you start building a theme, as it displays the functional requirements for theme development.
