maybe the steps are saved to a mp4 file
click on item, add to shopping cart, enter billing address, shipping address

If you are building an eCommerce site with payments and want to test out the full process, the ability to send "test" payments should already be built into your payment gateway.

As example, using Authorize.net you have two choices.  First is using your developer account for the gateway. This allows you to test everything and view all the transactions in the developer account gateway.  The second option is to put your live account to test mode.  

When testing, you will use test card card numbers and different billing options to generate different types of responses https://developer.authorize.net/hello_world/testing_guide/

Each gateway will have it's own way of working, but all will have some type of test/development mode.


okay; testing within the cms
