If you’re just starting out on Shopify you’re going to want to make sure everything is running correctly, and you can do this by using test mode.

Save this photo to use in the future!
After that, just click on pay now. And then you can see all the confirmation verbiage and all that good stuff.
Don’t forget to go and disable test mode when you’re done, but unchecking the box and clicking save.
This is a super important step in your website design because you want to make sure the experience for your clients is just right.
