When in test mode, you can run tests to view various billing transaction scenarios, such as a successful transaction, credit card decline, invalid credit card information, and more.
This will prevent transactions from skewing your reports and analytics. Orders placed while not in test mode will appear in your reports and analytics.
You must connect your Stripe account before completing a test transaction. Test transactions should be done using Stripe's test card numbers. You can also toggle test mode on your Stripe dashboard to view these test transactions and details within Stripe.
