Create a TEST PURCHASE once you have connected your Stripe account. This will help ensure that the integration works and your clients have access to the products included in the pricing plan(s). We recommend setting your plan's price at $5 USD.


When doing a test purchase, make sure to log out of your Web App and use a different email address other than your connected email address so you don't get an error.


Once you have successfully opened your PassionPayments checkout URL, you can do a test purchase by inputting your card details to confirm the order.


Once the test purchase is successful, check on your Stripe account if the payment went through. You may then choose to refund your payment back to your card via Stripe.
