By placing a test order, you can make sure that your checkout process and other settings all function accurately without being charged. To create a test order, you'll need to enter test payment information at the checkout page. You can simulate different types of transactions, depending on what information you enter.

Step by Step Tutorial

From your ShopBase admin, go to Settings > Payment providers.


If you have any credit card payment provider enabled, you should deactivate it before continuing. Click on the account and select Deactivate, then confirm your deactivation.
In the Accept credit cards section, click Choose third-party provider.


Choose Test Gateway.


Enter an Account Name upon your wish. This account name is only displayed in your ShopBase dashboard and order details. Then click Add account.


Once successfully activated, the account will be displayed on the Payment provider page.


To place a test order, go to your online store and place an order as a customer would. At checkout, enter the following test credit card details instead of genuine numbers:

You can refer to the Stripe test cards to place the order.

In Card number: enter the following credit card numbers.

4242424242424242 - To Simulate an Approved Transaction
4000000000000002 - To Simulate a Declined Transaction

In Cardholder name: enter any cardholder name.
In Date: enter any date in the future.
In CVV: use any three numbers as the Card Security Code.


Any order that has been canceled and refunded is not paid out or subject to transaction fees.
If Test Gateway is activated and your public domain is still an onshopbase.com domain, there will be a warning banner to notify you (and the customers, if any) to connect and set up a primary domain before fully launching the website and running ads on other platforms. After successfully connecting a new public domain (a custom domain that does not include onshopbase.com), this notification would disappear.


While Test Gateway is set up, every order that you create is a test order.
