How do I test if the whole thing work?

You need to place an order. How you do that depends upon the module. For the cc module, you just need to place an order. For Paypal IPN (or regular paypal), you need to have someone else do it since you can't order from your own account. There is a way to test it without that but it is a lot of work to test a single account. The modules like authorize.net, you can place the order but be sure to cancel it later on that service, unless you don't care about the charge going through.

You get a test account with most CC and paypal has a sandbox for testing. Once your happy with that you can run a couple of for real/live transactions through them and just hit refund afterwards.

After you receive the payment in paypal, you can refund the amount. Just click on DETAILS for that transaction, and at the bottom, it has a link for refunding the money. Just make sure you note it's a TEST so you remember to refund it haha.

 

That seems to be the best way for testing. Sandbox testing is a pain since you have to create false accounts...

 

Good luck!

Sandbox never worked for me since I couldn't make an account that had WPP active (where's the fake SSN ? I even tried my real one and it was rejected lol). I decided to test live after everyone in Dynamo's thread was confused by my posts. It worked fine when live.

 

So yea... live testing with your personal card is better than sandbox testing w/ a fake card. =P
