2 Integration Process

Your integration with PaywayWS is a three-stage process. During each of the integration stages described, you will have unlimited access to our integration development system and technical support.

You will be assigned a Payway technical expert who will help with any questions on technical- and payment-related issues.

Once in production, you can get support by calling 800-457-9932 ext. 225 or emailing [email protected].



2.1 Development (

We provide a development sandbox where Payway’s development and support teams can review your integration. This will allow us to monitor your requests and responses in order to quickly help you debug your integration.

2.2 Staging (

Once your integration is debugged, you will move to the Payway staging system to allow you to run your regression testing and acceptance processing.  The staging system is a duplicate of the production system, except you will use different logon credentials.

We will ask you to submit a set of transactions that will help to make sure the incoming data is correct and that error conditions are being handled. The validation is customized to your integration so that you will only be concerned with PaywayWS features that you plan to use in production. We will provide immediate turnaround on your validation transactions so there will be minimal lag time in your development/deployment cycle.

2.3 Production (

Before going live, you will receive credentials to our production system.  Validation testing on our production system is done in coordination with Payway support. This is an end-to-end test that includes verification of live deposits into each of your merchant accounts.
