Is it possible to Test Shopify Apps Without Going Live on My Store

I'm currently looking to enhance my online Shopify store with some new features, particularly of product bundling and upselling.
However, before integrating these apps directly onto my live site, I'd like to thoroughly test them out to ensure they're the right fit and won't cause any issues.

Specifically, I'm interested in trying out a bundle Bought together app and another for upselling. I want to assess their functionality and performance before committing to them on my actual store.

Does anyone have any recommendations or strategies for testing Shopify apps without activating them live on my site? I want to avoid any potential errors or disruptions to my current setup.

Thank you in advance for any assistance or insights you can provide!

It's really going to depend on the specific app, whether you can test them on an unpublished theme or not. Some apps automatically install coding on your published theme, so it's best to check with the app's support team first, if there are any doubts. 

 

The best way to ensure the app doesn't conflict with anything on your live store is to test it on a completely separate store. If you're a Shopify Partner, you can create development stores (https://help.shopify.com/en/partners/dashboard/managing-stores/development-stores) for testing things. Otherwise, you could make a new Shopify account to test things on (but remember to close the store before the trial period ends so that you're not charged for it).
