The Test Payment Provider allows you to simulate an end-to-end transaction as if you were using a real, live Payment Provider. This Payment Provider is for testing purposes only and should not be enabled on a production site.
If you don't have a Payment Provider for your business, then you can operate the system in reservation mode only, where no payment is required.
You can also operate many of our live Payment Providers in sandbox or test mode, to ensure the booking process is working correctly before going live as a production site.
Test Payment Provider ActivationBack to top
To enable the Test Payment Provider, log in to your Checkfront account and navigate to Manage > Ecommerce Setup, making sure the Payment tab is selected.
Here you see a list of available payment modules. Locate the Test Payment Provider tile from the list.
You find it by clicking on the link in the left side menu labelled Sandbox. You can also search for the Test Payment Provider tile directly in the provided search box.
Hover over the tile, which turns grey, and click.
This opens the Test Payment Provider activation window, as pictured above. From here, click the blue Activate button.
That's it! The Test Payment Provider is now active.
Using the Test Payment ProviderBack to top
To use the Test Payment Provider, simply create a test booking and use one of the credit card numbers below to complete your transaction. The Test Payment Provider accepts the following credit card numbers:
American Express: 378282246310005
Diners Club: 30569309025904
The expiry date must be valid (in the future), and the CVC can be any 3 or 4 digit number. To test a failed payment attempt, you can use the CVC 000.
You can use the Test Payment Provider from your customer-facing booking page, or internally via "Add Payment" on the invoice.
The Test Payment Provider overrides any live Payment Provider you have active in your account.
As a result, it is imperative you disable the Test Payment Provider before using your site for production purposes.
