Test mode for Ecommerce

What we realy need is a test mode when working with Ecommerce. We need to ba able to test the whole process when building a Ecommerce site. Test mode must allow us to create an order in development mode and complete an order without a Live payment provider

This will also be needed to be able to test and build Zapier intergrations

    Yes so what are people doing now? Do you just have to publish to public domain and then test?

    I'm trying to test sample payments for our site right now and just came across this thread. Please implement. I'm really surprised this isn't already a basic feature.

    We just encountered this problem! An early customer on our site encountered errors during checkout. I can’t ask them the right questions that would help me pinpoint the problem. I would need to create a very cheap fake product that’s live on the website during the time of testing in order to trouble shoot this as a workaround. It’s a no-go whichever way you approach it.


    Please implement this. It’s a super basic requirement to make sure things are set up correctly.

    And it needs to work with free site hosting too. Otherwise a site hosting needs purchased, cancelled and repurchased if transferring to a client.

    I'm surprised this is not a feature already. Hope to see it added.

    Test mode is essential if you are doing a custom integration to the ecommerce API and need end to end testing before releasing the solution to your client. Please find away to add this feature as a priority.

    Having a problem with conversion after the add to cart link is pressed. A Test mode would show me exactly what's going wrong.

    Come on Webflow team! We were so excited to use Webflow Ecommerce over Shopify because our marketing site was already in Webflow. Lack of testing capabilities will likely change our decision.

    How is this still not implemented? This is an absolute must-have for ecommerce platforms. Webflow's e-commerce is the worst.

    I agree!  On other e-commerce platforms they allow you to use dummy CC details to test out a variety of different CCs and the user can go through the entire checkout process.  We're currently testing a store and have had to spend our real money on products.  The fact that refunds take approx 3-7 business days is just especially painful.
