The new section allows Payza Business Accounts to test their payment button and instant payment notification integrations prior to a live release
LONDON, Aug. 28, 2017 – Payza, an award-winning global online payment platform, today announced the release of the Payza Test Center, which offers merchants a new way to test out their integrations prior to a live release.
The Test Center allows businesses to create and analyze test Payment Buttons and Instant Payment Notifications (IPNs) without performing real payment transactions. All Payza Business Accounts, both verified and unverified, have access to the Test Center. The Test Center provides sample information for testing credit card transactions using both Payza Member Checkout and Guest Checkout.
The Payza Test Center provides all the tools that a merchant needs to test their payment buttons and generate IPNs. “We wanted to provide added resources and a more user-friendly environment to help our merchants make sure their integrations are properly set up from beginning to end,” said Ali Nizameddine, EVP Product and Technology at Payza.
With this new offering, businesses can now convert individual Standard Integration and Advanced Integration Payment Buttons into test buttons, which reproduce the functionality of live buttons, however no payment data is ever sent or received. Merchants can still set their accounts to Test Mode, which converts all payment buttons into test buttons.
The Test Center provides scripts to convert payment buttons into test buttons, which allow merchants to verify that their buttons are properly configured. Transactions performed through test buttons can then be used to generate sample IPNs, with a range of settings to recreate the various Payza transaction statuses.
Sample IPNs can be used to build or test various post-payment automation scripts. Payza IPNs transmit encrypted information regarding every aspect of a Payza transaction. Once decrypted, merchants can use the values for scripts that automate post-payment tasks, such as sending out follow-up emails or fulfilling an order. Find a full list of IPN values in the Payza Reference Center: Payza API Guide – IPN.
“The new Test Center replaces Payza Sandbox and Payza Developer’s Center as the complete testing environment for Payza integrations,” said Firoz Patel, Payza’s CEO. “It’s part of our mission to make sure that our business accounts can easily navigate and test within our user interface and we’re confident that the Test Center will help in this regard.”
