I am concerned that not all shipping options are being shown to customers during
checkout.

I am using instant checkout.

So how can I see what they see?

On the other place, I can place an order in my own store and actually go thru
the checkout flow.

How do I do that here?

Thanks in advance

Have a friend sign up or parents or "do it for them" so you can check out your
own store that way and try things out. My father-in-law is a member so I ask
him to try certain things out for me or I do it when I visit him.

Significant others can also setup an account (or anyone in the household 18+)
and you can check with them, or temporarily borrow the account for testing.

Thanks both.

I was concerned about a second account from same IP address raising a concern
from “management” my son is over 18. So I’ll get him to sign on.

It would be nice to be able to “buy” from your own store as well, which is possible
on BO

An often-mentioned reason is that someone could use this possibility to manipulate
the price guide.
As if they couldn’t do that with a second account (connected from another IP).
They’d just need to remove “sales-to-self” from the PG.

Exactly.
But that was Dan's code and it's probably rocket science to them, considering
they didn't manage to prevent their own store from getting suspended due
to NSS procedures (is that right? I read it on the forum, but didn't confirm
it. Sounds hilarious anyway)

The shop is closed because "Reason: Three or more Completed NSS/NRS". Technically,
to get an NSS removed the shop owner needs to provide proof of shipping to BrickLink.
Assuming they keep records of their own shipment info, that is easy enough to
do for themselves. The help pages are not clear on whether BrickLink can be asked
to remove an NRS, so the shop might be closed because of too many NRS issues.

Niek.

Well its easy enough but no one has done it, also no employee interaction on
forum for a week or two now, BL email account full not taking more messages,
Are we adrift without a direction? Has anyone had recent direct contact? seems
to be a bit strange.
