Hi all... Some questions about testing before going live. We are setting up our first online store, so please forgive the naivety.
It's just that I can't seem to find any simple explanation about how to go about this part of the process on the FoxyCart documentation pages or forums. Basically, I've got everything looking good, all set up in terms of integrating the cart software with my site. And now I'd like to test out purchases to make sure everything functions properly on that end.
However, in the FC documentation, in the "Testing" section, it doesn't really say anything about what testing is, how to do it, etc. For instance (and, again, sorry if this is obvious), when I am on the test gateway, can I go through all the motions of making a purchase, all the way through the checkout? If I do this, what happens? The credit card used for testing will not be charged, I guess? I just want to make sure of this before testing, as our products are rather expensive and I don't want to make a mistake.
My next question: how do I go about choosing from the huge list for a "bank card payment method"? Can someone direct me where to look up which is better/worse, or recommend?
Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!
