Possible to use Stripe in Test Mode?

I'm trying to test my stripe account through Cash Music, but I cant seem to figure out if it's possible to hook up the Stripe test account since the API key seems to be auto-pulled from Stripe when you make the connection.

    Hey Jason,

    At the moment using testing mode isn't possible since the API mode gets set on the platform level. At some point it'd be nice to have a switch, but since there are multiple payment methods this might take a bit to get working across the board.

    Got it, thank you Tom.

    I continued to try some test transactions with Stripe and Paypal, but both fail without much information. I have both connections setup, and I tried to process a small transaction ($0.01), is there any way to get debug information about what might be going wrong?

    Hi Jason, I suppose we might not have that verbose of an error coming back,
    but there is a minimum Stripe transaction---looks like it's 50 cents.
    Thought we had a check on that during submission, but it sounds like it's
    not firing. I can take a look at that ASAP!

    Thanks for looking into this Tom,

    Actually, the paypal one looks like it’s working. I tried increasing the Stripe charge to $1.00 and it failed the same way.
