Test ModeLive Mode

As you construct your integration, leverage test mode and the test API keys associated with it. This way, card networks and payment providers will not process any payments.

Utilize test credit cards and accounts for the purpose of testing; real payment methods and accounts are not supported.

When you're prepared to launch your integration and process real money, make sure to use live mode and its associated live API keys. This will ensure that card networks and payment providers can successfully process payments.

This enables your business to accept real credit cards and manage customer accounts. Our payment authorization, charging, and capturing services for credit cards and accounts make it easy to process payments.
