Braintree's Home page: http://www.braintreepaymentsolutions.com

Testing: making sure your Braintree gateway works correctly
To verify that your Braintree payment gateway is set up correctly, we always recommend placing a real order through your checkout. This way you can confirm that everything is configured correctly and transactions are being processed as expected.
However, if you simply want to simulate what your customers do at the checkout or just wish to familiarise yourself with how transactions are displayed within your newly created Braintree account, then we recommend using your sandbox settings and setting your Braintree gateway options to Test Mode.
