Thanks for posting the log!

No problem at all...thanks for creating what looks like an extremely useful module!

that's one of the drawbacks of running tests against external servers...

Yes - when I wrote the tests for Business::Stripe::WebCheckout, I tried to get it to connect to my server during testing with dummy public and private keys. Although the test server gave the right response to a browser, it always failed when the Perl tests tried to access it. The required code for testing mode is still in the module...

choroba helpfully shared a blog over on Re^5: [RFC] Module code and POD for CPAN - Testing and test file

That blog is a bit beyond me at present so I had planned to go back and revisit Business::Stripe::WebCheckout. I have not done that yet and really should.

Perhaps there is a need for a module to help with testing modules that need to connect to external services?
