How To

Using the Checkout Preview

The Checkout Preview allows you to complete the checkout, seeing all of the text and checkout options, just as your buyers will in the future.  You may use the preview to verify the content on the Welcome, Terms, Shipping, Payment and Place Order pages.  The text that appears on these pages can be customized using the Checkout Messages settings.

To customize the colors, logos and privacy policy, use the Checkout Interface settings page.

Because the Checkout Preview uses all of the active settings for your account, you can also use the preview to troubleshoot problems with a specific item, buyer address or even shipping rates.  Simply select an item to appear in the checkout, and complete the shipping and billing fields with "test" buyer information.  Since this is a preview, there will be no invoice generated, and the payment information submitted (if credit card) will not be processed.
