From iOS 12 you can add a sandbox user account and you do not need to logout your main user from the app store.

You can set the sandbox user at Settings → App Store → Sandbox Account


Sometimes the Sandbox Account is not visible. If that happens on your device run your sandbox application and try to make a purchase.
When the purchase page appear go to Settings → App Store → Sandbox Account and add your account.
