Test Mode is used to design, style, and test a part on your website without creating transactions, generating emails, or communicating in any way with Blackbaud Services or The Raiser’s Edge. For example, you can complete the fields on a Donation Form to ensure the confirmation page is styled and working properly. Although you submit the donation and receive a confirmation on the screen, a transaction does not appear on the NetCommunity page and an acknowledgement email will not be generated for the transaction.

Note: Use the test mode to verify the user’s experience, not to test data processing. Test mode does not validate credit card numbers, merchant accounts, etc.
