When you sign up, you will be provided with a “test” site reference and a “live” site reference:
Test site references are prefixed with “test_”: e.g. “test_site12345”
All requests from your test site reference are processed within our sandboxed test environment, meaning no funds change hands. We recommend thoroughly testing your solution using your test site reference prior to going live.
Live site references are not prefixed with “test_”: e.g. “site12346”
When processing live transactions, you must use your live site reference, otherwise you will not receive funds. You can only process transactions in the live environment after you have completed your testing and followed the steps described in our Going live documentation, links to which can be found below:
