Take a moment to check out the product demo-server under:

For testing purposes we provide the demo-server, where testers can access the frontend but also the backend area. 

Usually most of the important features are available on the demo-server, less some particular features including the payment plugins (if the extension in case has these features) which are disabled. Note please that for extensions supporting Smarty templates the display is fully customizable through own product templates, else the display remains still flexible and offers the possibility to be matched with the site template through CSS.

Please note that the demo-server is reseted hourly, meaning that the initial values will be set and any change made during testing will be erased.
