    Hi - Just put a form with a credit card payment option on-line - my credit card and other's cards were denied with an oops message:

    Your card was declined. Your request was in test mode, but used a non test card. For a list of valid test cards, visit: go back and try another card or contact your card provider.

    Since your Stripe field is currently in test mode, it will not accept valid credit cards.  In test mode, the field will only accept the test credit card number listed while setting up the field:

    Click on the Stripe field, then click on the little magic wand icon in the top right of the field to open the options menu.  Disabling test mode will allow for valid credit cards to be used.  If you are still testing, use the test credit card number.
