- [Voiceover] One of the most important steps…in setting up a paid membership site is testing.…Before you take the site live,…you must ensure registration, payments,…and access works as intended across all levels.…This means actually signing up a group of test users…and putting your site through it's paces…to make sure everything works as it should.…If you're using Stripe as your payment gateway,…you can do extensive testing not only to make sure…everything works correctly,…but also to learn how the gateway itself works.…On their testing page, you have a long list of…credit card numbers to use to test your account…that provide insights into how different types…of cards are handled,…and what happens when something goes wrong…during the purchase process.…
I recommend trying out several of these numbers…to get a feel for the payment gateway and how it works…once your site goes live.…In particular, I recommend testing out…some of these numbers in the second table here,…that trigger different kinds of warnings on the back end…
