Can anyone suggest how to test payments in the Coinbase Commerce testing environment? I want to make sure that my payment integration is working properly before going live. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Why not just deploy an instance of the smart contracts on the Ethereum testnet and direct people to use it with another API?
Youre asking people to test in a live environment paying real gas fees which can get pretty expensive with thorough testing.
