If you’re setting up a new online store or e-commerce business you might want to test your payment gateway with a low charge amount.
Different payment gateways have different minimum transaction values and these can also vary across currencies.
- PayPal: For PayPal it goes down to 1 cent, depending on the currency
- Stripe: At Stripe it’s 50 US cents, or the equivalent currency rate
WooCommerce won’t warn you about these limits when you create a product, but it will throw and error message thanks to Stripe’s API.
To be safe, use $1 USD equivalent per transaction when testing a Stripe credit card payment.
