Testing Your Order Form

The method for testing your order form depends entirely on the payment gateway that you are using. 

This article will show you how to test your order forms if you are using the following payment gateways: 

  • Stripe
  • Braintree (please note, Braintree is currently not accepting new sign ups for ClickFunnels users. We are aware and in contact with them about this.)
  • NMI
  • EasyPayDirect
  • Infusionsoft
  • Ontraport

Best Practices for Testing

Email Addresses

It is highly recommended that you use a new email address each time you test. 

You can do this with a Gmail address by adding a +1, +2, +3, etc to your email address each time you test. 

Example: emailaddress+1@gmail.com, emailaddress+2@gmail.com, emailaddress+3@gmail.com

This will create a new contact in your ClickFunnels account, but you will still receive any emails and email notifications in your email inbox.

Incognito Window

When testing your order forms, you should use an incognito or private browsing window to simulate the experience of a new visitor to the page. 

Not using an incognito or private browsing window can result in errors as well as false-positives.
