We’ve often been asked for a test credit card processor so vendors can privately test their products and stores. In response, we’ve added a test credit card processor, available under Settings>Payments in the left menu, that you can activate to complete test checkouts.
When the test card processor is activated it automatically generates and displays a unique card number to be used for testing checkout. This is the only card number that will work with your store.This is to prevent random people from using published test card numbers from Visa, Mastercard, etc. to get your products for free.
We place warnings all over the DPD admin and cart when the test processor is active. Obviously, it goes without saying that when a test processor is active you won’t collect any money for product sales and it should be disabled before going live.
When you are done using the test card processor, simply return to Payments via the left menu, click Live Mode, then click the Change Mode button.
The test card processor works for older v2 stores, the current responsive cart theme (v3), and subscription stores.
