Many payment providers require you to complete a lengthy sign up form before you are able to try out their product.
With Pomelo Pay’s new test mode you can effectively ‘try before you buy’ by having quick access to our payment tools such as payment links and online shop.
The only difference is you can’t use them to take payments from real customers until you have completed the rest of the registration process.
To access test mode all you need to do is give us a few basic details such as your name, your email and the name of your business. After you have completed this sign up process there is no waiting around – you can dive right into trying out the Pomelo Pay app.
Whether you want to turn your phone into a card machine, send a payment link to someone or create an online shop, the Pomelo Pay app in test mode gives you access to a wealth of features that you can start playing with straight away.
One of the important questions you might have is ‘What does the customer see when I charge them using Pomelo Pay?’.
The great thing about test mode is that you can experience the full payment flow.
For example, if you’d like to turn your phone into a card reader, instead of asking a friend to scan your QR code as a customer would, you can simply click on ‘Try a successful payment’.
If you like what you see in test mode, then you simply need to click the 'Activate your account' banner at the top of the app, where you will be able to set up a Pomelo Pay account for your business.
Once this is completed, our compliance team will verify your account, and you will be able to accept payments from customers.
Alternatively, if you have set up your Pomelo Pay account, then test mode is the perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with our products until our compliance team verifies your account.
