How to place test orders through simulated transactions

Using Shoplazza's Bogus gateway, you can simulate real online transactions by placing a test order. Bogus Gateway will help you set up correctly without you paying any charges.


All other payment methods will be automatically disabled if Bogus Gateway is activated from the toggle switch. From there, every order will become a test order.
