Sandbox/Test Accounts

ShipBob does not at this time have a true "sandbox" for development. However, every new ShipBob account automatically enters a demo mode, with data being cleared after the demo mode is exited.

For apps using PAT authentication, you can test with fake orders/products and cancel them or make them inactive later. Alternatively, you can create a separate test ShipBob account and request a separate token for that. Then, just swap the bearer tokens for your production account when ready.

For OAuth apps, we recommend building your app and installing your app with a test merchant account you've created.
