Test Mode

The Reflow API can operate in live or test mode. While developing and testing your app, it is recommended to work in test mode to avoid the risk of accidentally initializing charges with actual money.

How to Enable API Test Mode

The mode of API requests is determined by the URL subdomain. This applies to all subscription, e-commerce an auth API calls.

# Live mode

# Test mode

When sending requests to the API, only objects of the respective mode will be accessible. For example, when fetching all products in test mode, no live-mode products will be returned.

GET and POST requests that target a specific object (usually by its ID) will return 404 Not found if the item's mode does not match the selected API request mode.

For API routes that requite API key authentication, the same key can be used in both live and test mode.
