Note - WePay customers: Do not use the same email for the test transactions that you used to setup the WePay account - WePay's fraud filters are likely to reject such transactions as potential money laundering or unauthorized "withdrawals".
Enter a name only*: Test Transaction, then click Generate Order button.
Entering name only will test for high AVS (Address Verification Settings) on your gateway. We recommend lowering AVS for your event to reduce the number of failures due to missing or incorrect billing address components.
*Note: WePay requires a valid zip code, School Pay and Vanco require complete billing addresses.
