Store is locked

14 3 2

My store is complete.

I need to open the store.

Apparently i am suppose to test the checkout.

The feature to turn the shopping cart to test is NOT THERE.

How do I re-set it?

Hey @euroallparts,


Welcome to the Shopify Community!


When you mention that your store is locked, do you happen to see a password page when visiting your website? Once you remove password protection, then anyone can visit your store. You can only remove the password after you pick a pricing plan. Are you currently on a paid plan or a trial?


You can place a test order by simulating a transaction through Shopify's Bogus Gateway, or if you're using Shopify Payments, then you can test your configuration by using Shopify Payments test modeYou can also use a real payment provider, and then immediately cancel and refund the order. You might be subject to fees from the payment processor that you use.


It's important to note that you can test a payment gateway only if you've chosen a paid plan. Follow the link below to check out each subscription plan we offer and choose one that best suits your business needs:



Otherwise, I thought I'd also leave you with some further resources to help you prepare for a successful launch day:
