Once Bold Cashier is completely set up on your store, it is recommended that test orders be placed to ensure everything is working correctly.
Creating test orders can be completed on a Backup theme of your Shopify store, to ensure there is no disruption to your live store. It is also recommended to put Cashier in Development mode while testing, which allows you to process an order through a test payment gateway.
When orders are completed without Development mode being enabled, this means it will require a real payment to process.
Bold Cashier is built to replace the Shopify checkout on your store. This is usually to help work with other app integrations, or help process your store's orders through an alternative checkout.
While development mode is enabled on your store, our checkout will be unable to process live orders through your store. When you're ready for our checkout to go live, please be sure to disable this feature.
Please follow these steps to enable Cashier's development mode:
- From Shopify's admin, select Apps.
- Select Bold Cashier.
- Select Payment Options, then Payment Gateways.
- Select the toggle to enable development mode.
Note: This will have to be turned off again when you would like Cashier to go live again on your store.
- Once development mode has been enabled, you can proceed with placing a test order.
Place a Test Order
When creating test orders, it is best to try different scenarios when testing (for example: gift cards, discount codes, credit cards, being logged in or out, etc.) to ensure everything is set up properly.
If development mode has been enabled, or if you would like to place a live test order to have it refunded after, then please proceed with these steps:
- From your Shopify storefront, add products to your cart.
- Select Checkout.
- Ensure the URL in the address bar now begins with cashier.boldcommerce.com.
- Proceed through the Checkout.
- Enter the following Test Payment Card information:
Card Type Good Card Number Failed/Declined Card Number Visa 4111 1111 1111 1111 4012 8888 8888 1881
- Select Complete Order.
- From Shopify's admin, select Apps after receiving the "Order Confirmation Email".
- Select Bold Cashier.
- Select Orders, then All Orders.
- Ensure the order you placed appears here as Captured.
- Check the Shopify order admin to see if this payment has been captured. It should be listed as from Bold Cashier (via import) beside the order number.
