Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Testing purchases in subdomain test site

  • Resolved designbysue


    I have created a subdomain and set up a copy of my woo commerce site for development and updating. Can someone tell me how I can test the checkout process on this test site? I take PayPal payments only so need to test any changes I have made through the payment stage. I have read that the subdomain will not work with my Paypal account but really would like any help on this before I mess something up!

    Hi there,

    You could switch your PayPal payment gateway to “sandbox mode” under “WP Admin > WooCommerce > Settings > Payments > PayPal > PayPal sandbox > Check – Enable PayPal sandbox” on the subdomain. For more information on how that works, have a look at

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.

    Sorry – thank you for you help.I will have to check out the link but can the subdomain be on sandbox and the domain still work correctly? Or should the domain be put in maintenance mode during the testing? I was under the impression from something I read that the PayPal account would not work with the subdomain, Possibly the link answers these questions…

    Thank you
