It is helpful to place a test order on your store to get an idea of what the customer would experience when placing an order or to check for problems with your checkout pages taking orders. This also gives you a chance to see if applicable shipping or tax rates you have set up are getting applied properly.
To place a test order:
Note: You will need to use real shipping address and credit card information to complete checkout as the information will need to pass validity checks with your payment processor.
To view your test order:
Note: While referred to as a "test order", any orders you place in your store for testing purposes are treated as actual orders. Your payment processor may charge transaction fees for authorizing orders when placed even if the order is later cancelled. Likewise, Yahoo! will charge for orders that are not cancelled in the Order Manager.
