Testing overview

What you need to test to go live with the Bango Resale API

You must test your code, and Bango must certify your test results, before you can go live.

All development and most testing uses test credentials, which Bango supplies to you when you sign up. These credentials let you use the full capabilities of the Bango Resale API, with production URLs, but sandboxed to ensure you and your test users can't accidentally work with live merchants and live services.

Bango recommends two stages of testing:

  1. API testing: with test credentials, making sure your code sends correctly formatted API requests, and handles responses appropriately
  2. Production testing: real-world testing with production credentials and live merchants
Certification Process Prerequisites
  1. Valid Bango Resale API username and password for a Bango test account
  2. IP addresses for the reseller systems provided and whitelisted on Bango system
  3. Basic Authentication
Bango Music

Bango Music is a test merchant provided by Bango which simulates a merchant. Bango Music can be used to test against the Bango platform without a live merchant connection.

For all certification tests, the following API parameters should be used:

  1. productKey: BangoMusic
  2. merchantAccountKey: BANGO (case sensitive)

Before commencing with the testing, the reseller can use the Service Availability API to ensure basic network connection is working correctly.
