Before going live and processing payments, we highly recommend you test your setup in your test/sandbox environment. A sandbox is a copy of your production environment, commonly used for testing and development.
Their URLs are formatted like this:
- Sandbox: https://sb-bo.lemonway.com/[partner-name]
- Production: https://dashboard.lemonway.com/[partner-name]
Your test/sandbox environment remains active even after your first go-live. You will be able to continue testing and we highly recommend you do!
Testing your integration before going live
Access your test/sandbox environment
The Lemonway team will create your test/sandbox environment as soon as you sign your contract with us. The URL will be shared by your Client Implementation Manager.
Payment methods you can test
You can test incoming funds using the following payment methods:
- Bank card
- Direct debit (SDD mandate)
- Cheque (simulated entry)
- Transfer (simulated entry)
Whitelist an IP address in your test environment
Whitelisting works the same way as in production.
- From the Dashboard, click Configuration. A drop-down menu appears.
- Click IP address whitelist.
- Click Whitelist an IP address +. A pop-up box appears.
- Fill in the form.
- Click Add +.
Live penny test
Once your live environment is ready, and just before you actually process any payments, you can test if everything’s working correctly (especially payment methods that couldn’t be tested in the test/sandbox environment) by transferring small amounts of money.
💡 We suggest you perform a regular start-to-end workflow. 👉 Get in touch with your client implementation manager if you have any questions.
