Getting started with your sandbox

Before you start using your PaymentsPlus sandbox, review the following to get started.

  1. Processing payments.
  2. PaymentsPlus user guide.
  3. REST API reference and Tutorials.

Once familiar with the documentation, the simplest way to get started with your sandbox is to take one of the below sample files and:

  1. Update the <PaymentDate> to today's date,
  2. Update the <BuyerCode> to the Buyer Code detailed in your welcome email, and
  3. Update the <YourEmail> with your email address so that you can receive the remittances.

Then upload the file into the sandbox using either method:

  • Sign in and click Upload File in the Payments menu, or
  • POST /files/{fileIdentifier}/upload using the PaymentsPlus REST API

The payment file format is Australian payment import CSV.
