Hi Geri,

This is possible and depends to some extent on he payment gateway you are using. PayPal have what they call a sandbox which allows for the whole process to go through without it being charged for on your account.

You can set this to on for the testing purposes within the store after signing up for the facility with PayPal..

Please see this thread Testing paypal before opening the store.

Some other gateways can be tested similarly but they require you to open a testing sandbox on their own sites before hand and configuring it there also.
