Can you set my payment module to “Test Mode?”

Occasionally, a merchant will ask if a particular payment module can be set to “test mode” in order to test their store’s integration with a particular gateway.

  • The short answer is no.
  • The long answer is NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

All kidding aside, setting your store’s payment modules to “test mode” is not possible.

You see, when payment modules are integrated into the 3dcart system, we enable them to work directly on live production servers for their respective payment service rather than test servers. The reason for this is because we’ve already done all of the testing necessary to get the module to work correctly. There’s no need for you to do any further testing, so we allow you to skip this process and get into selling as quickly as possible.

Testing the order process on your store is still possible though. Click here to learn about testing the store.
