How to create a Salesforce Developer account

Creating a Salesforce Developer account is entirely free. You don’t need to pay anything to acquire this license. It, however, limits your access to a limited number of features on the platform. There’ll also be a 5MB limit on data storage and a 20MB limit on file storage. 

So how should you sign up for a Salesforce developer account? 

First, you should visit and select the signup option to start creating your developer account. 

Enter your personal information like name, company name, country, and postal code on the signup form. You can set your role to “Developer” or anything else you prefer. Use your email address as the username as the following example shows.

After submitting these details, you’ll receive an email from Salesforce prompting you to confirm your email address. It can take a while to arrive. But you need to click the “Verify Account” button on this email to proceed further in this process.
