Test & Live Modes

You can set any auction to be either in test mode or live mode.

The mode is set when you connect Your Stripe.com Account

When an auction is in test mode, you can only process charges using test credit card numbers.

This functionality enables you to have a test auction for practice and training purposes, while continuing to process charges on your real auction.

The processing mode is shown on the main Credit Cards window.


Use Test Mode

When you are operating in test mode, each credit card window will show a test only notification along with a test card number that can be used.


See Stripe testing for information about testing your stripe integration from the stripe.com side.

Switch to Live Mode

To change the credit card processing mode for an auction from test to live mode, you must unlink your stripe.com account in test mode and re-link it in live mode.

Under Actions, select Stripe.com connection.


On the Stripe Details page, click Unlink Your Account.


Follow the connect Your Stripe.com Account instructions, making sure to NOT select test mode.
