Enable Development Mode in Cashier


Bold Cashier will replace your Shopify checkout; either when using one of the app's integrations, or by processing all of your orders through its checkout. Before enabling the app for your customers, you may want to turn on development mode to test it. We recommend this step so you can ensure all features are working as expected. You can do this on an unpublished theme, so as to not disrupt your live theme

Note: Visit Partially Enabled (Plugin) Mode for more information on the app's two modes.

Please follow these steps to enable Cashier's development mode:

  1. From Shopify's admin, select Apps.

    select apps

  2. Select Bold Cashier.

    select cashier

  3. Select Payment Options, then Payment Gateways.

    Payment Options/Payment Gateways

  4. Select the toggle to turn on development mode.

    Note: You will need to "Turn Off Development Mode" before going live.

    Enable Development Mode

  5. Once you have enabled development mode. Place a test order using one of the test credit cards.

  • Hello, when I toggle to Development Mode disabled, all of the Stripe payment gateways I've created still say Development Mode. Is that expected behaviour? What am I meant to do to turn off development mode?

  • Good morning Brooke!

    Thanks for reaching out! This is actually an expected behaviour, yes. The payment gateway will stay in the state you connected it in, meaning Stripe will always be in development mode if that's how you initially connected it.

    You'll just need to reconnect your payment gateway once you toggle Development Mode to 'Disabled'. If you want to go back to Development Mode in the future, that version of your gateway will still be there.

    Hope that helps! If you have any other comments, please don't hesitate to ask. :)
