If you want to see what it looks like to be a student purchasing one of your courses you can just… play in the sandbox!
Sandbox is excellent for when you’re building your school. It helps you design the paths to and after purchase in an optimal way. In this way, you can be sure that everything runs smoothly.
Let’s see how you can use it.
1 From your admin menu navigate to "Settings"- "Financial" - "Payment gateway" and select “Sandbox” as your payment gateway (it is selected by default if you have not selected a payment gateway):
2Now sign up to your own school as a simple user:
3Find your favorite course and click on the Enroll button!
4In the checkout page you will notice that the credit card details are prefilled for you, with some test credentials!
Please note that these credentials are not editable and are prefilled automatically - if you hover over the payment method you will also see a darker background appearing with the information that the form is prefilled for testing purposes.
5 Now all is left, is to click on the Buy button:
You have now purchased a course using the Sandbox mode as your payment gateway!
Piece of cake, right?
Once you complete the "payment" you will receive your invoice as well you can check its layout and in case you want to change its fields you can see how to do it here.
