The best way to check user experience in your online store is to make a test purchase.

1. Create a new product: call it Test product and set a low price for it.

2. Make sure you've enabled payment methods based on your testing preferences:

3. Display the test product on your website with the help of product sections.

4. Enable the shopping bag on your website.

5. Open your online store, find the test product, add it to the bag, and proceed to checkout.

6. At the checkout, specify the shipping information, enter your contact details, select a payment method, and complete the purchase.

7. Once you place an order, a confirmation email will arrive at both your merchant email address and the email address you've entered as a customer. Check these notifications and find the test order in your store management area → Orders.

If you place a test order using a manual payment method, the payment status will be Awaiting. If you test an online payment, and it goes through successfully, the payment status will be Paid. In case the online payment fails, check if the payment method is fully set up.

8. Once you're sure that everything works as intended, you can delete the test product.

It’s also a good idea to ask for feedback when building your store. Consider asking a friend to take a look and discuss their experience after shopping in your online store.
