Using Test Mode

You can run Fundraise Up end-to-end in test mode: Checkout, Payments, Emails, etc.


Making test transactions

Note: See Stripe for test credit card details


You can test Checkout on any existing page. Just add following parameter to your page URL and then click any element or link to trigger the checkout.

This will override the global installation code live mode.




You can run in test mode for all Elements and Checkouts installed on single page of your website, or on entire website. To enable test-mode simply add the following line just before your installation code. Note: if added to global header, this will run the entire site in test mode.

window.fundraiseup_livemode = false;
