Testing payments

Hi -

I'm trying to test the shopping cart that comes with PowerStore v2. I haven't made any changes to the default setup, other than adding my key #'s to the global file. I've been playing with it (and fyi - my account is in test mode - not test mode in the global file, but test mode in's account setup on the site) and it seems to always accept the charges no matter how fake the cc # is. When I was testing another site that I used eCart with - it would deny it if I had the wrong address or bad CC # - but the default payment setup on Powerstore seems to accept Every fake order I put in. What is it not doing correctly?

No ideas? I've tried to submit a support request for this problem as well as my shipping questions, but I can't seem to find any place to submit new tickets on your website. All I see is my support history, but no button to submit new requests. Have you guys moved your support to the forum only? If so, I guess I hope my two threads/questions get answered. I preferred the support tickets because then you could send the support a file, or your phone number if you needed more help. I wouldn't do that in a forum. Oh well....

In the WA_Globals file, have you set the $WAGLOBAL_Test_Mode variable to "true":
$WAGLOBAL_Test_Mode = true; //Set to true if you are testing your shopping cart and do not want to send information to your payment gateway.

If you set that to true, it will bypass the payment gateway, in other words, no information is sent to the payment gateway.

To use in TEST mode using power store, double check the following setting:

$WAGLOBAL_Gateway = 2; //Enter the appropriate value based on the above key. PayPal is specified by default.

$WAGLOBAL_Test_Mode = false; //Set to true if you are testing your shopping cart and do not want to send information to your payment gateway.

$WAGLOBAL_Authnet_Sandbox = "TRUE"; //Set to true if you wish to use the Sandbox for testing transactions.

We have moved support to the public forums. In the cases where we will need to see your files, or give a phone call top offer assistance, we will create a support ticket for you so you can supply the needed information in privacy.
