Test mode allows you to create test transactions that are sandboxed in their own environment. It’s very useful for you to be able to test your Tito setup before you share your event publicly.
You can enable test mode for either yourself or for everyone. If you enable it for everyone, than your public page will be in test mode and anyone who has access will only be able to carry out test transactions.
If you enable test mode for only yourself, then you will be able to put test transactions through only while logged in, and anyone else who visits the page will be putting live transactions through.
To enable test mode for either yourself or the whole event, just visit Customize -> Test mode and change the switch beside either option.
When in test mode, when you view Orders and Attendees, you will only see orders and tickets that have been registered as test transactions.
When you visit a public event page while in test mode, no payment will be made and you can put transactions through that will only appear when you are in test mode.
For test transactions made using Stripe, the transaction data will appear in your Stripe test environment, and you can use any of the test credit cards on their testing page. For transactions using PayPal, you will be offered the ability to simulate a successful payment or failed payment.
Once you are finished testing, do make sure to switch test mode off so that you can see live transactions as they come through!
