Testing Instructions


The Paysafe Test environment can be used to test websites or applications without running transactions through the Production (live) processing platform. Depending on the information provided with the transaction request, the simulator returns either a successful (approved) or failed (declined) response.

With the Paysafe API you can test the following:

  • Verify support for all the operation types that you require.
  • Review all common errors as well as errors that may occur for each operation, and ensure your application can handle them.
  • Verify the lengths and format for all attributes you send.

Test API Endpoint

The API endpoint to use for Test transactions is:

For example:

Test and Production Accounts

Test accounts enable you to process API transactions that mirror the functionality on the Production environment. Once you are satisfied with your integration to the Test environment, you will need to repeat any configuration changes made to your Test account on the Production account. Keep a record of any changes requested and carried out.

You will need to use different API endpoints and authentication credentials to connect to the Paysafe Production environment.
