Setting Up Your Test Status

1. An email is received from Sagepay for you with your user credentials i.e. Vendor Name and two different passwords; an admin password to access the account, and an encryption password. Log-in to Sagepay and create a user and grant all privileges to this user. This means you now have a Vendor Name and Username.


2. Go into your website Admin > Site Setup > Integrations > Sage Pay and enter the supplied details for Vendor Name and Encryption Password and set Payment Type to Payment 


NB This is the usual setting for taking payment immediately, Deferred and Authenticate methods allow payments to be taken at a later date read more on Sagepay.


3. Go to Payment Processor Manager and edit the Sagepay payment processor so that "MODE" is set to "Test" (which hides this payment processor on the live website and only directs transactions to the test account).


4. Please now carry out a test order through your website, making sure you use one of the test credit cards.


5. Once you have carried out a Test order, please login into the Sagepay Test account , to make sure "Test funds" have been credited to the account, and you are also able to perform a "Test refund".


6. Once step 5 has been successful, log in to your website Admin >  Payment Processor Manager > Sagepay and change the status from "Test" to "Live".
