Demo or Productive Transactions

You can create your particular Transaction in demo mode by passing a flag. This is useful for testing, especially during integration.

Always test Sofort payments with 88888888 (eight times 8) as IBAN or BIC. Otherwise, the payment will be executed even if the transaction was created in demo mode or on our test servers. Please make sure this is considered when working with demo transactions or on test servers.

Smart Transaction
"is_demo": true,

For demo transactions, no payment is being processed. Demo transactions can be filtered and excluded in SecuOffice.

The demo mode is a boolean value:

  • true: The Smart Transaction is marked as demo transaction. The payment is not processed.

  • false: The Smart Transaction is handled as a productive one. The payment will be processed.

The default value is false, a productive transaction.

There can be different payment methods configured for demo and production. If a particular payment method is available in production mode, it must not necessarily be in demo mode, and vice versa.

Do not forget to change the parameter when you make tests including our live system. Also do not forget to switch to production, when you go live. The resulting transaction cannot be changed anymore, but only be cancelled.
