Test accounts

Developers and other team members can test LotusPay by signing up for a test (sandbox) account and using it to create test mandates and payments.

The LotusPay sandbox environment enables you to test the full platform without real mandates being created or real payments being submitted to the banking system for processing.

You can use sandbox accounts to build your integration and test the LotusPay API, dashboard or bulk file approaches.

Sandbox accounts are entirely separate from live accounts.

URLs

Note the following URLs when using the dashboard and API:

SSL

In the sandbox environment, when creating an eSign eMandate, the customer's browser will warn of lack of SSL whilst redirecting to the eSign gateway. This is because the eSign gateway sandbox environment does not use SSL. Please ignore this warning and continue.

Emails

Emails generated in the sandbox environment have [TEST] prefixed in the subject line. Emails generated in the production environment do not have any such prefix.

Simulation

The Sandbox environment has a simulation feature that enables you to test out various scenarios. Click here for more information.
