I am trying to create an activity on our payment page.  The url for the payment page is not complex -- it is essentially like this:

http://www.our-site.com/products/orders/payment

My problem is fairly simple. I have set this url in the Configuration>Page Delivery settings.  The VEC tries to load this page, but our website auto-redirects it to the homepage because it doesn't have any order information stored in Session Storage (which is where it would be if a user had gone through the normal process of picking a product and trying to order it).

Because the page is redirected, it seems Target freaks out and the VEC becomes useless.  It takes a long time for the VEC to "try" to load the page, then most of the links in the VEC menus seem to quit working.

So how can I set up an activity to perform some tests on our payment page?

So if I am following you, your suggestion is to use the same browser that I have Target open in, right?  Therefore, the SessionStorage values may get selected when the VEC tries to load the page?
