    Hello Shopify Help Center,

    I recently came into an issue where the item I was buying was 1 per person. I ended up placing 4 separate orders for 4 different persons under the same account where I listed different names under the shipping address. The issues was that when the seller viewed the orders, they were all under my name. Why did this happen? Where is the data from the "Customer" column being pulled from? @ 3:23

    I tried this using your test credit card numbers for a succesfull order, but Shopify keeps saying the card was declined. I have selected a plan. Do I need to remove password protection on my store before it will work? I tried the VISA number, the mastercard number, and the AMEX number. All declined.
