Testing your account

Before you can start processing transactions through your account you will need to complete certain tests with us.

Depending on the way you plan on using Sage Pay to process your transactions will determine the tests you need to carry out on your account.

Online Payments

If you are using us to process transactions through your website you will need to complete the following tests.

  • Create a User within Test MySagePay
  • Process a test transaction through your website to our test system
  • Perform a refund on the test transaction you have processed.

These tests are to familiarise yourself with our systems, and the transactional process itself before you start taking actual payments.

The tests also help to highlight any potential issues you may encounter with your integration before you start processing transactions.

After you have completed your testing you will have completed your part in the go live process.

Mail Order

Similar to Online Payments you are required to complete tests before you can start processing transactions through your account.

With Mail Order the tests you need to complete are slightly different to the Online Payment tests.

  • Create a User within Test MySagePay
  • Process a Mail Order transaction through either Test MySagePay, or through your back end office system to our test platform.
  • Perform a refund on the transaction you have processed.

With Mail Order you are able to use your MySagePay panel to process transactions, or your own back end office system.  This will depend on the way you have integrated your system with us.

If you are using your own system to process transactions and are not sure how to change to our test platform you can perform the test through MySagePay, or speak with your web developer who will be able to help you with this.
