Testing your Page
Before publishing, Non-profit pages will be in Test Mode. This allows you to experience the donation journey, see how the system works and check how your data will be presented.
Viewing your Page
You can view your page at any time by clicking View from the menu of your Page Settings.
We recommend clicking the Shuffle! button in the menu to see how your page might look as donations are received. As the page owner, you are the only person who will see this button.
Testing the donation experience
Visufund uses responsive web design, which means that the pages are optimised to fit any screen shape or device. Our research shows that over 80% of page visitors view pages on their mobile phone, so we usually advise testing the donation experience from your phone or tablet.
To test the donation experience:
- Login and view your unpublished page
- Select an object and proceed as if you are making a donation (no card details required)
Payment processing is simulated in Test Mode, although notifications will be sent as though a genuine donation has been made.
Downloading test reports
After making some test donations, you can also download test reports to see how the data is presented. To do this:
- Navigate to Reports
- Click the download icon by Test transactions only to select this report
- Set the date range you require
- Click to download a CSV file
You'll also be able to see full details of each transaction in Transactions.
Deleting test data
When you've finished testing, you can delete your test donations if you wish. Alternatively, you can leave them so your page isn't empty for the first visitors.
You can either delete any test donations/messages directly on your page using the Delete button on the message, or from the Messages section of your Page Settings.
