How do I create test orders?

When first integrating with ChannelEngine or when adding a completely new channel / marketplace, it may be desirable to create one or more test orders to test processing these orders.

You can create these by walking through the following steps:

  1. Go to your CE dashboard
  2. Select 'Settings' --> 'Support'
  3. Fill in all the info you need for your test order and click on '+ Create test order'. The only minimum requirement is that you enter a valid / active product in the 'Order lines' section, otherwise orders would most likely not be able to be retrieved by your ordermanagement system. All other sections are optional and if left empty, they will be filled with our own default dummy data.

Please note: If you do not have any (active) product and no channels are added, you can not create a testorder. Every order has to come from a specific channel containing at least one valid product in order to successfully process it.
