How can I Create Test Orders on my Staging Site?

The staging site comes with some fake customers and products and you can use them to perform test transactions. To test workflows and to become familiar with the system you can process transactions with cash tender or you can use a fake credit card number 5454 5454 5454 5454 (make up the expiry, CVV and name on the card) to generate some orders.
You can also add the fake credit card to the customers profile and try using the card on file to process orders. 
 
**Note if your gateway is PayGate South Africa you need to follow these steps to test front end website orders:

Fake credit cards can only be used for testing workflows when the payment gateway is not active. When testing the payment gateway we recommend using a real credit card to ensure payment is processed and refunded without error.
