A. Connect Stripe and PayPal to your website

On ShopBase Creator, you can connect Stripe and PayPal - 2 of the most popular payment methods - to your website so that members can easily make a payment for your products. You can find your payment method settings by going to Settings > Payment providers and follow the instructions down below for further details.

Connect Stripe to your store, which accepts debit/credit car payments.
Connect PayPal to your store, which accepts payments via PayPal.

If your website is in free trial mode, all connected payment methods will not be displayed on the checkout form. You can enable test mode to test the checkout process.

B. Place a test order

By placing a test order, you can simulate the customer experience of the order checkout process and make sure that this process process along with other settings all function accurately without being charged. To enable test mode, follow the instructions below:

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


In Test mode, click Enable test mode.


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

In Card number: enter 4242424242424242 to simulate an Approved transaction.
In Date: enter any date in the future.
In CVV: use any three numbers as the Card Security Code.

If genuine card details are submitted during checkout when test mode is enabled, the system will report an error.
Orders created during test mode will be marked as Test and will not be counted in Analytics reports.
After a test order is made, you will be redirected to the order confirmation page (thank you page). However, you will not have access to the product you purchased.


If test mode is enabled, the person who completes the checkout will not receive abandoned checkout emails.
