Please be well noted that we require NO access to anything related to the sales of your website. While testing the app, we assume that our test orders work well once we receive order confirmation emails.

Note. To correctly configure the checkout, we will install a script in your BigCommerce Backend. After completing an app order, you want your app user to maintain their account in the app. In the case of the web checkout, which we configure for all apps either as the default checkout or a fallback from a native checkout, we need to add a script to the BigCommerce backend to support this.
