Fintoc has a test mode —or sandbox— for you to test the API without making actual payments or connecting a real account. The sandbox is a testing environment that simulates creating real objects without the risk of affecting real transactions or moving actual money.

In the documentation pages associated with the sandbox, you will find the credentials that the sandbox uses to allow you to test every possible flow your users might follow without breaking a sweat 😎.
All Fintoc API requests occur in either test mode or live mode. API objects in one mode aren’t accessible to the other.
|Mode||When to use||Objects||How to use|
|test mode||Use test mode, and its associated test API keys, as you build your integration.||API calls return simulated objects. For example, you can retrieve and use test ||Use test bank accounts. You can’t accept real payment methods or work with real accounts.|
|live mode||Use live mode, and its associated live API keys, when you’re ready to launch your integration and accept real money or connect real accounts.||API calls return real objects. For example, you can retrieve and use real ||Accept real bank accounts and work with customer accounts. You can accept actual payment authorizations, charges and connect real links.|
The Test mode toggle in the Dashboard doesn’t affect your integration code. Your test and live mode API keys are what ultimately affect the behavior of your code.
