Adding a payment method on the test environment

You can easily activate a wide range of payment methods through our self-service feature in the Customer Area

  1. Log in to your Customer Area (Test or Live).
  2. Select the desired merchant account.
  3. Go to Settings > Payment methods > Request payment methods.
  4. Use the search function to find the payment method you need and select it.

Additional details

Most payment methods don’t require additional details and the setup is instant. The two exceptions are ApplePay and PayPal which involve a similar set-up to the Live environment. Following, you’ll find a comprehensive list of payment methods that you can activate yourself for the Test environment. You can find the equivalent list for the Test environment on this Help page.

You can find a full list of the payment methods below, under “DIRECT SETUP AVAILABLE”

Adyen’s certificate

** You don’t need to host the domain association file to test ApplePay 

Merchant’s own certificate

  • Enter merchant name

Common issue : “I received an error when trying to add ApplePay and was told to contact support”. Please see our article on troubleshooting ApplePay errors.


PayPal

PayPal Sandbox email

Make sure you have a specific sandbox email for TEST and a specific email for LIVE. Using the same email for both environments will result in an error. Please see our docs for more information.

  • Test = [...]@business.example.com
  • Live =  generic company email address (included in the shopper statement)

PayPal merchant ID

  • You can find this by logging in to PayPal with your test business account. Go to Name in top right > Account settings > Business information > PayPal Merchant ID.
  • Authorization type: Make sure to select the same capture flow that is configured on PayPal's side:
    • Direct capture (SALE) is the default configuration. The payment is authorized and captured immediately. This is recommended as itreduces risk of captures failing (per PayPal’s authorization and honor period).
    • Authorize & capture (AUTH) means the payment is first authorized. Capture can occur immediately or separately, at a later time.
