    Good Afternoon All,
    We just got our Paypal payment gateway set up and enabled, but I'm at a loss as to how to test it.

    I thought I could just go to the marketplace we have set up and try to buy something which would then prompt me for payment via Paypal. I think I'm missing some steps.

    I also just created a user plan called "Premium Test" that is $5.00 per month and was trying to set it up to test Paypal, but I don't know where I need to go to upgrade to this subscription plan.

    The best way is to join your site. If it is also set to show after registration and you are logged in as someone other than your super admin, you should see it on your profile. I don't have the subscription for after registration showing here yet for me to verify that.

    Hi Bernard

    In addition to the info provided by Donna, I would like to add few more points. 

    - You might find the option to upgrade the subscription plan in the mini menu.
    - If you are using the Live PayPal account details, please make sure the mode of PayPal account is 'Live'. If the PayPal account is in 'Sandbox' mode, you will need to use the test details to check the payment.
