Hi @Rachet , 

To create one thousand test orders, you can utilize the Shopify API and send one order every 30 seconds. Here's how you can approach it:

  1. Make sure you have the necessary API credentials and authentication set up for your private app.

  2. Use the Shopify API to programmatically create orders. You can make POST requests to the Orders endpoint (/admin/api/2021-07/orders.json) to create orders via the API.

  3. Write a script or program that sends the API requests to create orders. You can use your preferred programming language or tools like cURL or Postman.

  4. Set up a loop or timer in your script to send the API request for each order every 30 seconds. This will ensure a controlled pace for order creation and won't overwhelm your server.

  5. Within the script, you can generate test order data or use sample data to populate the order details. Ensure that you include unique information for each order to simulate a realistic scenario.

  6. Execute the script, and it will create one thousand test orders at the desired interval of 30 seconds.

Remember to monitor the process and handle any errors or exceptions that may occur during order creation. It's also essential to clean up the test orders once you've finished testing to avoid cluttering your store's data.

Please note that creating a large number of test orders can have an impact on your store's resources, so it's essential to perform this testing on a development or test store rather than a live production store.

If you have any further questions or need more assistance with your private app testing, feel free to ask. Good luck with your testing efforts!
