How to write Gherkin scripts – A straightforward example

Today I will take you through step-by-step how to successfully write and execute durable test scenarios using the Gherkin syntax, using the payment pathway of an e-commerce website as a straightforward example.

Gherkin is a plain-text, business-readable language that is designed to be easily understandable by non-programmers. It is most commonly used to define regression testing or test automation, or define business cases in the case of a new feature or functionality within a system.

Writing your test scenarios in Gherkin correctly is essential to getting the right results. Writing them like how I will show you in this video is in an investment in the beginning. But, it will ultimately save you time because you’ll have clearly-defined processes that will make it much easier to branch off to other scenarios and create more test cases later on.
