Using Test Mode, you can test your Better Shipping rates without customers seeing them at checkout.
You can use Test Mode by adding the app name (Better Shipping) as the first name and last name on the Shopify checkout page.
First name: Better
Last name: Shipping
You can use any other details on the checkout, as long as the first and last name are Better Shipping.
Using those details, you can test that your rates are working correctly before enabling them for your customers.
For more information on creating a test order on your store, please see our test order example help page.
