I just purchased, installed and configured Membership Pro. It's working on a Joomla/JomSocial site with PayPal as our sole payment gateway.

I need to begin testing the sign up process so I can see if it will work for potential members. How can I test the entire process (getting message screens, getting emails, etc.) without actually making new memberships in PayPal (and having to put real money out and then refund it).

Is there a testing environment?

Thanks!

Laurie

I just saw that this is addressed in the documentation. So please disregard.

OK Laurie

Please let us know if you still need help. We can provide you our PayPal Sandbox Account which you can use for testing if needed

However, better register and use your own sandbox account

Would be helpful to let the rest of us know where in the docu you found it.

I found the Paypal plugin description saying "Paypal Mode: Set to Test Mode ..." but I don't have an option called Test Mode in my plugin. Where is it?

Hello

Click on os_paypal payment plugin to edit, you will see a parameter called Payment Mode:

1. Set to Sandbox will make it works in test mode
2. Set it to Live will make it works in Live Mode

Regards,

Tuan
