Placing a Test Order

One thing you probably want to do when you sign up is place a test order to get an idea of how the order flow works with SPP.

Connect your payment account

You’ll first need to connect your PayPal or Stripe account so you can get paid. This is fairly simple — just go into Integrations, enable the module you need and click on Settings to configure it.

Set up your order form

Now if you go into Forms you should see a sample order form that we’ve set up for you. Open the form by clicking the view button and note the URL of the form – you can share this with your customers.

Turn on test mode

At this point you could place a test order from another account, but you can also go into test mode to place an order without sending real money. Go into Settings > Payments and turn on Test mode.

Place your order

Remember the form URL from earlier? It should look something like this:

You can now sign out of the admin account and place a test order using this link.

PayPal – your regular PayPal account will not work in the sandbox mode. So you will need to create a separate sandbox account for testing as described here.

Stripe – you can use the test credit card number 4242 4242 4242 4242 with any valid expiry date for testing.

Test with a free service

To test your funnel without the payment step, you can set the service price to $0.00. This allows you to make unlimited test payments without a valid payment method.

Test with an existing account

You can log in as any client and proceed through your order form as that customer. This will save you time when testing because you won’t need to enter your email address or billing info each time you checkout.

Testing subscription payments

While you can set up a subscription that charges every day, and wait for the payment to go through, you can also use the “Charge now” feature on subscriptions to trigger a subscription payment at any time.

Click on the actions menu next to the payment history in order details and select “Charge now” from the list.
