What's the difference between our development account and our production account?


I need to know the difference between our development accounts and production accounts.

  • Development accounts are used for the testing phase, typically before you go live. 
  • Your production account is where your actual live transactions will go once you are live.


Note: We release the final version of any service updates to the development environment prior to the final release to production. This can result in slight differences in the two systems due to the update being available in development first.
