How does one make test / bogus purchases on one's site before going live?

I have searced and searched Forums and Documentation, but can find nothing definitive other than posts about periodic issues on this subject.

I found one post - https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/shopify-apps/t/how-to-put-store-in-test-mode-40303 - but alas it is outdated and indeed the asnwer is invalid.

Does anyone have a link to a comprehensive how-to page for test/ bogus purchases, OR, does anyone wish to write one as a reply to this post?

Thanks - James

Hey James!

Testing your site and checkout before you go live is a really good idea :)

We have a Test Order guide available here that outlines how to place a test order with the Bogus Gateway as well as with your Real Gateway.

Once you're done your test order, make sure you Cancel and Refund it so that you don't incur transaction fees and that your reporting isn't thrown off by fake orders. 

I hope this helps!
