Why didn't I have to pay to submit an entry?

 

If you submit an entry via Entries > Manage entries it will bypass the shopping cart and you won't have to pay. This can be useful if you want to submit entries on behalf of entrants who have already paid. The entrant will receive notification of the submitted entry but no order is generated. 

To test payment set up, create and submit an entry via Entries > My entries.

Important: It's essential to complete a live payment test before opening for entries. This will ensure your payment gateway is correctly configured. Please contact support@awardforce.com if you have any issues with payments.
