Preview Mode will display a test version of your page. This feature allows you to preview the entire page from a ticket buyer's standpoint. It will not save any data, but you can see the confirmation page and it will send you a confirmation email. This is our recommended way to test.

How to Use Preview Mode

This will display a test version of your page for you.

Test your registration page functionality

You can go through the page in its entirety to preview what the ticket buyer sees, view the confirmation page/emails, and test conditional logic (actions). The software also allows you to bypass entering billing information by automating dummy data in its place.

When submitting your test ticket purchase, the page will not save any data. It will, however, allow you to preview the confirmation page and email that you designed to ensure they are sending properly as well.

What Works in Preview Mode

No real data is generated for test ticket purchase completed in Preview Mode. Because of this, there are specific features that work as they do for a live page:

All form fields

Actions (conditional logic)

Billing Section (with dummy data)

Confirmation Page (view only)

Confirmation Email (view only)

Coupons

Social Post Preview

Social Proof

Note: Any feature you do not see in this list will not work in preview mode.

Preview Mode vs Tester Gateway

Preview mode is the primary suggested method for testing the functionality of your page. A tester gateway is not required when using this method.

A tester gateway should only be used when you need to preview how data is going to save, appear, and work without having to charge real cards and refund them. Since the data cannot be deleted, a duplicate page should be used rather than your primary page.

FAQs
