When you first install Better Shipping, the app is in Test Mode. This means that it won't affect your current shipping settings and your customers won't see your shipping rates until you switch the app to Live Mode
To switch the app to Live Mode, from the main Shipping Rates page in the app, or any of the editing shipping rates pages, you can click the Subscribe Now button in the Test Mode banner.
This will take you to the plans page where you can select a Better Shipping app plan. Note all plans have a 14-day free trial, and the trial only starts once you subscribe.
Once you've chosen a plan and accepted the charges (no charge is made until the end of the 14-day free trial), you will be redirected back to the app and the app will now be in Live Mode, and you should no longer see the yellow Test Mode banner at the top of the page.
The change is instant and you should be able todo some test orders on your store to confirm everything is working as you expect. (If not please contact us at email@example.com)
Note if you are already subscribed to the app, you will see a smaller Test Mode banner with a green "Switch to Live Mode" button. Clicking this button will instantly turn the app back to Live Mode for you.
How do I know if I'm in Live Mode
If you are in Live Mode, you will not see the yellow Test Mode banner at the top of the main Shipping Rates page inside the app. You can also check if you are in Live Mode from the Settings page inside the app:
Turn off Live Mode and go back to Test Mode
You can turn off Live Mode and go back to Test Mode at any time. Inside the app go to the Settings page from the left hand menu. Then click the green "LIVE MODE" switch in the blue box.
You can confirm you are back in Test Mode by looking inside the box, and also by the yellow Test Mode banner at the top of the page. The changes are instant and your shipping rates will be turned off for all customers.
