Shopify checkout disabled!

We started our online website. But it seems that we can't test orders... 

We currently have the pause and build plan, is that maybe the reason we ca't test any orders? i saw online that if you choose the bogus gateway you can test order but when we try it gives us the screen that says ''checkout system disabled''

if someone could give us an easy explaining it would be much appreciated!!

kind regards,

Hey, @MJGroup

What you're experiencing would be normal behaviour as the "Pause and Build" plan for $9/month would fully disable the checkout process while keeping your store live, and providing admin access to continue working on your business. You will need to move to the "Basic" plan or higher to enable the checkout process for testing purposes. What insight were you hoping to gain from testing the checkout? With some more context, I can see if I can help provide some clarity around the process!
