Test Environment - Active Merchants

You can switch between test and live transactions by sending the "test" variable along with your transaction request. A value of "1" will send the transaction as a test transaction. If the "test" variable is not included in the request, or is set to anything other than "1" the transaction will be processed as a live transaction.


Development Environment - Developer Merchants

Development-specific accounts must use a separate gateway test environment located at: https://gateway.qa.helcim.com/ Please contact us to obtain a permanent developer (demo) account.
