Test Environment (demoslweb.com)

You can use the test environment to test your checkout page and the API.

You have access to all the features of the Softline Checkout service. However, the test environment does not provide access to some of the capabilities: you cannot process true payments or receive payouts. The test environment also allows you to:

  • Use all the capabilities of the Merchant Portal (create products, leverage promotions, connect webhooks, etc.)
  • Add created products to a test checkout page.
  • Create orders.
  • Pay for orders using the test payment instruments.

The test environment and the production environment work independently of one another. You cannot migrate product data, order data or any other settings between the environments.

The links leading to the resources of the test environment have the following suffix: .demoslweb.com.

The test environment and the production environment work independently of one another. You cannot migrate product data, order data or any other settings between the environments.

You get access to the test environment immediately after you have registered on the Merchant Portal. The system automatically creates a checkout page for you in the test environment. The checkout page has default settings.

If you want to test how the API works, you have to contact our support team to configure the necessary settings.

No additional authorization is required when interacting with the test environment.

To add a product to the test checkout page:

  • Open the Merchant Portal.
  • Switch to Test Mode if your account has already been activated. If you have not activated your account yet, skip this step as your account works in Test Mode by default.
  • Go to the product view page in the Products section. You must see a checkout link at the top of the page. The link allows you to add the product to the checkout page. Copy the link, paste it into your browser's address bar and follow the link. If you haven not created a product yet, create it.

You have to contact our support team to get access to the API in the test environment. Our team will create separate access parameters for you.

To interact with the API in the test environment, add .demoslweb.com. to the domain URL of the production environment.

Example:

  • Production environment: https://api.ecommerce.softline.com/v1/login_check
  • Test environment: https://api.ecommerce.softline.com.demoslweb.com/v1/login_check

You can also use the request collections in Postman to test the API. You can find the links to the collections in the documentation sections on the corresponding APIs.

When using the test environment:

  • No additional authorization is required. Use only the authorization that is provided for you to access the API.
  • If the response to your request contains a link to any resource located on our end (e.g., a product image, a checkout page, an order page, a payment form), then this link is supposed to be used in the test environment; i.e. all links in responses to requests will contain the .demoslweb.com. suffix.
