When test mode is used, the transaction is not dispatched to the card issuer, but is instead handled by the DIBS test environment. When the shop goes live, the test system is normally disabled, and should the shop want to use the test mode at a later date the DIBS support can be contacted for reactivation.
To utilize the test environment, two things must be done:
- The shop must be enabled for test payments in the DIBS system. A new account is enabled for test payments by default, while the test environment normally gets disabled when the shop goes live (begins to receive live payments). If you are in doubt if your shop is able to receive test payments, please take contact to our support department.
- A test parameter must be sent in the request to DIBS along with the other information sent. Please refer to the individual documentation for each function for the format and value of this test parameter.
Beside above two, a special set of test information can be used to test the integration. This section lists the different test cards and invoice information that can be utilized to test the reaction of the system when different payment results are returned from DIBS' systems.
