Once Bold Checkout is completely set up on your store, it's recommended placing a test order to ensure everything is set up properly.

Test orders can be placed once development mode is enabled.

It's important to note that placing a test order while Bold Checkout is live will process real funds. Placing a test order while development mode is enabled will allow you to test as many orders as you like, without worrying about being charged.

  2. Select Open under Bold Checkout.
  3. Select Payment Options, then Payment Gateways.
