Set Up Test Account

The viaConex test account provides the environment for integration development, certification, and future user acceptance testing (UAT).   Your Solution Engineer will help setup this test account

As a first step, you need to identify the type of transaction processing that is required for the program. The two processing environments are Terminal-Based Development and Host-Based Development.

As a next step, the Market type(s) need to be identified for the project. The available options are:

  • Retail
  • Restaurant
  • Mail/Telephone Order
  • Internet
  • Lodging
  • Auto Rental processing

A Vendor Number will be assigned by the Vendor Certification Department of ELAVON. This number will be an alphanumeric value and should be capitalized. All Vendor Certification Device Types will be a value of "Z".

In order to send transactions to either the development or production server, a Registration Key is required in all scripts sent for processing. There is a default development key that can be used during the initial phases of evaluation, but once a unique key is assigned to the project, it should be used for both the development and production servers. This key will be assigned by the Vendor Certification Department of ELAVON.

Finally, a Bank Number and Terminal ID will be assigned for testing to the development servers. Once the certification is complete and the program is ready for production, these values will need to be filled according to the Merchant's assigned Bank and Terminal numbers.
