Changes to a live shop can cause many unexpected results so it is better to test the shop on the server before making them live. Ordering this item will cause the creation of a test shop on your server. The test shop will be an exact copy of your live shop but completely separate, including the database. It will be password protected to prevent anyone from seeing it other than those with the login credentials. This item applies to any version or offshoot of osComerce. We can create a test shop of other shopping carts though there may be an additional charge.
