Test setup of Recurring payments plugin
NOTE: The Recurring Payments plugin runs on activation. It’s always a good idea to test your setup before going live. You can enable Pause Mode for testing.
Test your setup as follows:
- Go to Chamber Dashboard >> CD Settings >> Payments >> Recurring Payments.
- Enable Pause Mode and save changes.
- Enter Membership Renewal Dates (MRD’s) for your test Business listings.
- Use an MRD’s that match the notification time frame that you have selected on the settings page.For example, if you have notification set for 1 week, enter an MRD that is exactly one week from today.
- Make sure your test Business listings have a billing email.
- You can use your own email for testing, but it should be different than the admin email.
- Delete or mark ‘paid’ any outstanding or test invoices / orders.
- Go to Chamber Dashboard >> CD Settings >> Payments >> Recurring Payments and run a test.
- If using the Member Manager plugin, check to make sure invoices were created and sent.
- If using the Member Manager Pro plugin, check to make sure orders were created and sent.
- WordPress is notorious for not being great at delivering email. If your email notifications are slow or not sending at all, consider installing an SMTP plugin.
- Once you are finished with testing, be sure to disable Pause Mode!
For Businesses with a MRD that exactly matches the notification time frame, a new invoice / order should be generated & emailed to the member (this will be your email for testing purposes)
NOTE: When using the Member Manager Pro plugin, new orders are generated and sent to your members for payment.
