Sandbox Testing

Here you can understand a little better how to integrate to the Worldnet sandbox account. It's required some level of familiarity with the basics of integrating with our hosts - as detailed in our API Specification in the previous page - and the explanation is not intended to offer complete testing guidelines. For these purpose, take a look the Testing Guide.

What is a Sandbox account

A sandbox account is used to test basic integration with our payment gateway. These accounts (one per currency) are publically available on our test host and can be used without requesting access from Worldnet. They provide very basic functionality and no access to the back-end ‘Merchant SelfCare’

What can you test?

Sandbox accounts provide the ability to perform basic sales and refunds through our test host with any of the three integration methods, including eDCC. In order to be able to test pre-authorisations, completions, SecureCard functionality, subscriptions, unreferenced refunds or any other feature or currency, you must request a full test account by e-mailing

In order to test a Hosted Payment Page customization you need to obtain access to a full test account first.

Please note that 3D Secure cannot be tested and it works only with live environment and live credit cards.

Account Details

Our test host connectivity information is available in our Integration Guide document. Sandbox account details are:


Gateway Currency Terminal ID Shared Secret
worldnet EUR 6001 sandboxEUR
worldnet GBP 6002 sandboxGBP
worldnet USD 6003 sandboxUSD

Please note that if you are using the Hosted Payment Page or POST page in the live environment, you should always include the RECEIPTPAGEURL parameter, so that our host knows where to send the customer to after payment.
