Create a test order

Testing your Shopify store's integration with Filemonk is crucial to ensure smooth transactions for digital products. There are two effective methods to create test orders: using a 100% discount code or utilizing Shopify's Bogus Gateway.

Method 1: Using a 100% Discount Code

Steps to Create a 100% Discount Code

Access Discount Section: In your Shopify admin, go to Discounts.
Create Discount: Click on Create discount and select Discount code.
Setup Discount Details: Enter a name for the code, like TESTORDER.
Discount Type: Choose Percentage and set it to 100%.
Apply to Products: Specify that the discount applies to all products or select specific ones.
Save Discount: Save the discount code.

Placing a Test Order

Add a digital product to the cart, and apply the discount code at checkout. Complete the purchase process.

Method 2: Using Shopify’s Bogus Gateway

Setting up Bogus Gateway

Navigate to Payment Providers: In Shopify admin, go to Settings > Payments.
Choose Bogus Gateway: In the Accept credit cards section, click Add a provider > Third party credit card provider > Bogus Gateway.
Activate the Gateway: Click Activate to enable it.

Placing a Test Order

Add a digital product to your cart. Proceed to checkout, and enter these bogus payment details: Name on card (any name), Card number (1 for success, 2 for failure, 3 for error), CVV (any 3 digits), Expiration date (any future date). And complete the checkout process.

After placing the test order using either method, check if Filemonk correctly processes the digital product. You should receive a download link for the product via email or on the Thank You page, confirming the successful integration.
