SPOD has a test environment called the Staging Area which lets you try out your integration and order processes.
To use this feature, you will need to register an account for the Staging Area. Your usual SPOD credentials will not work. You will also need to enter test credit card information. You can use these test credit card numbers. The staging area lets you create orders and simulate orders going into production and being shipped.
To do this you can create an order via your respective integration or by creating sample or manual orders. When creating the test order it’s best to create orders above $300/€300 in order to circumvent batching .
Once the order is created, go to the order detail page and on the top left under More Actions click Simulate Order State in Production. You can now see what an order looks like when it goes into production. Select More Actions again and click Simulate Order State Sent.
This will make your order look like it has been shipped and will generate a tracking number.
Please note: You will need to go to their Magento account and navigate to Stores > Settings > Configuration > SPOD > General. Here you will find the Enable Staging option, which you can toggle to Yes.
