If you only want to test the gateway, you can create a Test account (Sandbox account)

You will need to get the Merchant ID, Public key & Private key on your Braintree account for later steps.

Go to Braintree. If you have an account with Braintree, click on Log In or create an account by clicking on Sign Up.


Enter your credentials to Log In. You can also login with your PayPal account.


Click on cogwheel icon.


From the dropdown menu, select API.


Click on View to view the API keys. If you want to generate new keys, click on Generate New API Key.


Here is where you can find your Braintree Public Key, Private Key and Merchant ID. Copy all of the keys.

In the Third-party payment providers page, choose Braintree.


Enter your merchant info from step B above and then select Add account.


Turn on Test mode then use the credentials from Test account if you just want to test the store.
To keep your account safe, ShopBase will not send any information related to your store, including your store name, store domain, product name, etc. to payment gateways to help prevent your account from being restricted.

After connecting your Braintree account to the store, you can deactivate it anytime and still be able to re-activate it later with the same or different credentials.
