How can I test the checkout and customer login area?

This is how you can test the checkout flow for your products and how you can see what your customer will see inside their customer portal

How to run a test checkout?

You can test the checkout flow easily by navigating to the products section here and clicking the Preview Checkout from the drop-down menu on the right. This will load the checkout in test mode and will not actually charge your card in the end (nor will it generate an order on your Subbly admin.

Remember, each product you create on Subbly has a unique checkout URL which can be accessed from the product page and can be found inside the Checkout URL field as in the picture below:

How to test a customer login area?

Seeing the full experience of the customer login area requires you to actually finish the checkout instead of using a test mode as described above. That said, you'll first need to have active subscribers on your store in order to be able to see the customer login area the way they see it.

You can access (and ultimately manage) each customer profile and subscription from the Customers tab on your admin. Once inside the customer profile, go to the square to the right with the contact details and historical activity of the customer, click on the three dots and then on Login as customer button so you're taken straight into subscription portal of a customer in question.

Be super careful as everything you change once inside the customer login area will actually reflect changes on the customer's subscription.

We call this admin mode or a God mode.
