Can I do a test to see if it works, just to be sure?

You sure can! Go into the “Settings” screen and turn on “Test Mode” – after doing so, you will see a noticeable “TEST MODE” indicator displayed at the top of all screens. This will allow you to process some test charges so you can check everything is working as it should.

While in test mode, sample test credentials are automatically displayed in the app so you simply need to enter an amount and description and tap "Charge Card" to process the payment and see it go through.

However, if you are testing out the Payment Request functionality in test mode, to complete the payment request you will need to manually enter payment credentials into the form as follows:
Card number: 4242 4242 4242 4242
Expiry date: Any time in the future (e.g. 09/24)
CVC: Any 3 digits

Or if you would like to test other card types or the SCA payment methods, find card credentials at

Be aware that e-mail receipts will not be sent while in “Test Mode”.

Don’t forget to turn off “Test Mode” before you want to process transactions for real!
