Here are a few basic features and processes that you should be familiar with before switching from test mode to live mode.
Each account has a test mode and a live mode. All API requests and API references work in both settings. Objects in live mode cannot affect objects in test mode and vice versa. In test mode, credit card transactions are not submitted for billing.
Each mode has its own set of public and private keys. Only the test keys can be used in test mode. Test mode and live mode each consist of 2 pairs of keys:
It is very easy to activate your account. You provide us some information about your product, your business and your personal relationship to the business.
Once you activate your account and we have received and validated your documents, the live keys will be generated and available to be downloaded.
As soon as you have received the keys, you will be able to carry out payment transactions directly. You will also be sent a confirmation e-mail.
We are pleased that we can offer you the safe 3-D Secure credit card payment. This relieves you from most fraud problems that may arise and ensures you your amounts paid.
We'll integrate it into PAYMILL for security reasons and will only accept payments from 01.11.2012 with 3-D Secure by default, if the card is enabled for it. For further questions about 3-D Secure please contact our Support team.
When a card with 3-D Secure enabled is submitted, our Bridge will open an iframe on top of your page, so that the user can enter his verification code. For more details about it and for customization options, please see the PAYMILL Bridge documentation.
You can learn more about 3-D Secure in our FAQs.
