You are only a few steps away from your goal. After having successfully tested the module, the account can now be activated.
Transactions that are carried out in the test environment will not be debited from the customer's card. And that is a good thing. However, in order for you to really receive the money after the testing phase has been completed, it is important that you closely follow these steps:
- Request the activation of your live-account via the hotline of your Payment Service Provider
- In the configuration of the payment module, switch the operation mode to "Live Mode"
From that point on, all transactions will be to the credit card used for the order.
The activation process varies slightly among the individual Payment Service Providers. However, always pay close attention, that the module is set to the correct operation mode.
