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

    Any update on this? Hell, I'll build out the feature for you guys, for free. I can't imagine it taking more than 20 hours of dev time - if that.

    This is really a must have. not being able to test your most important user interaction is just too bad to be true.

    Is there a timeline on this?

    There are a few glaring holes in Webflow's eCommerce ability that you wouldn't find in any other serious eCommerce offering and this is one of them.

    Webflow is already behind on every aspect of eCommerce, aside from design ability, which really doesn't align with the high monthly fees Webflow charges for eCommerce.

    Please catch up Webflow :)

    "Do not use real card details. Testing in live mode using real payment method details is prohibited by the Stripe Services Agreement. Use your test API keys and the card numbers below."

    Copy-pasted from stripe developer documentation. But Test card numbers only work in test-mode, which does not work with Webflow. So, in fact, we have no way to check if checkout works. This is not an idea, it is a must-have.

    I can't believe there's no test mode, it's absolutely ridiculous.

    I've just spent 3 weeks setting up an ecommerce website for a client, moved to a paid hosting plan and only just now, found out that you can't test your sales flow with Stripe in test mode. What??? How is this not available? How could you even release Webflow ecommerce without this? I'm dumbfounded and in disbelief. I see that people have been asking for this for more than 2 years, how is it not fixed/available yet?

    Create a coupon for a 100% discount. Still gonna have to use a real card though.

    So frustrating that there is no way of me knowing if my checkout page is functioning properly!

    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.
