The only way to test if your payment method(s) has been set up correctly is to place an order from the website front end like a normal internet customer and to check out, paying with the payment method(s).
Trial and staging accounts are set up to allow this and we highly recommend that you test all integrated payment methods prior to going live.
This is also a good opportunity to practice processing an order, creating an RMA (returned merchandise authorisation) and processing a refund.
