"Test Mode Only"

How to change your connection with Stripe.com from 'test mode only' to support live charges

It is possible to connect a Stripe account that only supports test transactions. This can happen if either:

  1. you check the 'test mode only' checkbox when connecting the account
  2. or, you connect to a Stripe account that was not fully activated.

If you connect to a Stripe account that was not fully activated then activating that account later will not change the status on our side.

You can see if you account is in test mode only by clicking on Credit Cards from the auction dashboard, if you see:

Then you will not be able to process live charges until the connection is replaced.

To switch to a 'live' Stripe use the following steps:

  1. Go to stripe.com/dashboard and sign in to your Stripe account

  2. In the same browser tab sign into Auctria

  3. Click on Credit Cards -> Stripe.com connection

  4. Click on Unlink Your Account
