The PaySimple Sandbox is a test environment that is designed to simulate our active production environment. It is a safe environment in which to test API connectivity and functionality.
Payments processed in the Sandbox environment are routed to test authorization and capture servers which are designed to behave in the same manner as our production servers. However, none of the transactions will be submitted for processing, and no funds will be transferred.
Since the Sandbox mimics an active production environment, the same authentication requirements apply and you will need to obtain a PaySimple sandbox account in order to use it. To do this, contact our API Support Team at [email protected] with the following information:
- The email address you would like associated with your account.
- A request to generate a Sandbox API Key
A PaySimple API Support team member will contact you with the sandbox API Username and the sandbox API Key (a Shared Secret for Server‐to Server authentication).
It is against PCI rules to use live account numbers in test environments. Please be certain that you only use test account numbers in the PaySimple sandbox environment.

Note: The expiration dates on the test cards below can be any date. "12/2023" below are just example values.
