Making a Test Purchase

(Updated 3/19/2018)

In your Business Settings, set the Stripe Account Type to "Test Stripe" and your Stripe account will not be charged. 

Starting in T-REX v. (3/10/2018)  and later, setting the Stripe Account Type to "Test Stripe" will also ensure the order CSV will NOT be sent to PrintTech. This makes testing easy by simply toggling the Stripe Account Type from Live Stripe to Test Stripe for PrintTech orders.
