User payment confirmation
Once you click Stripe as payment in the checkout you will see empty card fields to fulfill the fields with correct data you have to use the Stripe test credit cards, then click pay now you will be redirected to the order confirmation page.
By default, the payment information can be used to update the order in Crystallize under src/pages/api/payment-providers/stripe/order-persistence.js. Here you can choose if you would like to store extra information.
