Manage test orders

You can use the REST Admin API to create test orders and transactions to validate your app's behavior. To avoid platform fees, this guide shows you how to manage test orders with the REST Admin API by completing the following tasks:

  1. Creating an order with an authorized transaction
  2. Getting a transaction ID to use as a parent ID when capturing the transaction
  3. Capturing the transaction and setting the test property to true on the order

Other methods, such as using a manual payment gateway and the cash on delivery payment method, don't create a test order and are subject to platform fees.
