How do I place test orders through simulated transactions

You can set up Bogus Gateway to enable simulated transactions on the checkout page. Bogus Gateway is a payment service provider that any store can use to create test orders. After Bogus Gateway is set up, every order you create is a test order.

To create an order, you will need to enter test payment information at checkout. You can simulate different types of transactions based on the information entered.

1. Start here: SHOPLAZZA admin > Settings > Payments > Bogus Gateway


2. Activate Bogus Gateway. Once activated, other activated payment channels will be disabled automatically.


3. Go to your store and place an order like a customer. On the checkout page, please enter the following credit card information, which will redirect you to different payment scenarios.

Field name

Details to enter

Name on card

Enter any name 

Credit card number

Enter each of these in turn to simulate different types of transaction:

 Enter 4200000000000000 to simulate a successful transaction

 Enter 4111111111111111 to simulate a failed transaction

 Enter other numbers to simulate an exception (this generates a message indicating that an error has occurred with the provider)


Enter any 3-digit number (for example, 111.)

Expiry Date

Enter any date in the future.

4. After completing the test, click Orders in the Shoplazza admin to view the transaction details of the test order.


5. Switch off the Bogus Gateway control or enable another payment channel that will automatically deactivate this gateway.



*You can select to restore to the last real payment channel setting.
