Step 4: Test your website and go live

Once the integration is done, you will be asked to process a test transaction and a refund to ensure everything is working properly. Once that's done we can make your account live. You will now be ready to start accepting payments. Once that’s done we can make your account live. You will now be ready to start accepting payments. Remember you must also have you Merchant IDs validated before we can make your account live. We can do this before or after your test transaction.

Step 5: Renew your PCI compliance certificate

Opayo is certified to the highest level PCI DSS Level 1. This reduces your compliance requirements significantly unless you have chosen the direct integration method.

You can get your certificate quickly and cheaply from Trustwave, our Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) partner.
Remember: If the bank setting up your merchant account(s) has their own Qualified Security Assessor partner then you'll need to go with them rather than Trustwave.
