I would like to buy the W3 Total Cache Pro version !
I have a question before that. We use 2 environnements:
DEV and PROD
-> If we install and pay the pro version on the DEV env, then publish the WordPress DB and files to Prod, will the license work for both environnements?

The W3 Total Cache Pro license is limited to a single domain at a time and you will not be able to use the same one for both your production and development environments. One thing you can do though is put your development environment in Pro Dev mode to more accurately mimic the same behavior you will see in production.
Add the following code to the wp-config.php file for your development site to put it in Pro Dev mode:

Thank you for your answer.
We did try this in our DEV environement as you say, to validate that the expected feature would work before buying a licence, apparently it did not work (feature not enabled – deferring CSS). Did we miss something?
Do we have to buy the license and apply it to our PRO env. before being able to use W3TC_PRO_DEV_MODE on our DEV env. ?
Have a good day,

You shouldn’t need to apply the Pro license to your production environment for the Pro Dev mode to work on your development location, and there could be some kind of configuration on your website that is preventing the Dev mode from working properly.
Could you send a message directly to our dedicated W3 Total Cache support team using the Performance > Support tool available in your WordPress dashboard? They should be able to help you figure out why the Pro Dev mode is not working in your development environment.
Please let us know if you have any other questions for us!
