Getting started

Accepting online payments with Verifone can be done through multiple integration methods. This page describes what you need to know in order to decide on which integration method is best for you and where to find the essential information like URLs and how to authenticate with our API.

API authentication

To process transactions through the sandbox and production environments you will be using different API keys. One key is used for sandbox and one is used for production. Make sure your API key and secret are never stored on the client's side, they are only intended for server to server API calls.

Environment variables

The URL you use determines if you are making calls into the sandbox or production environments. Different URLs, API keys and other variables need to be used in sandbox and production. When setting up your environments make sure the following variables are configurable:

URLs See below
