    I'd like to test my forms, especially the credit card forms, to make sure they are working properly. How can I do this in a way that doesn't actually charge my card, and which doesn't use up one of the ten payments a month I have with the Bronze plan?

    For your forms which use payment gateways like Braintree, you can look for the sandbox mode switch for your field. This will allow you to run an actual submission but without making an actual payment. To do this:

    1) Open your payment gateway's properties
    2) Click the settings icon

    3) Scroll down and look for the Additional Gateway Settings.
    4) Switch the Sandbox mode to Yes.

    5) Save your settings and then publish your form.

    This will be ready to accept payments in sandbox or test mode which means all transactions/submissions made through this will not make an actual payment. You can also use any card number such as test card numbers

    You can also check out the credit card number for testing which you can use for Braintree on this page: https://developers.braintreepayments.com/guides/credit-cards/testing-go-live/php
