Before sharing your payment link with a contact, you can test the link to make sure it works as expected and experience your customer's payment journey. Using a test mode, you can replicate the actions that take place in actual payment scenarios, without actually charging a credit card. Testing your payment links is especially important for higher payment amounts. You can test payments made via credit card or ACH.
Please note:currently, you cannot test recurring payments links.
To access your payment link for testing:
In your HubSpot account, click the settingssettings icon in the main navigation bar.
In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Products.
Click the Payment links tab.
Hover over the link and click the Actions dropdown menu, then select Open link in test mode.
The link will open in test mode, and a banner will appear at the top of the checkout page that indicates you are in test mode. Enter values from the tables below to complete a test purchase.
When you test your payment links, a new contact record will be created using the buyer email address entered in test mode as long as a contact record does not already exist for this email address. A deal record will also be created with (Test) included before the deal name.
An email notification will be sent to you and to the buyer email address that you used to test the link, and you will receive a test payout email. However, the test payment and payout will not appear in your transaction history tab.
