Test payments

You can test payments by utilizing Speed web application payment resources in test mode. Alternatively, you can achieve this by calling these payment resource APIs with the test mode API key.

Let’s assume a scenario where you want to check your integration of one of our resources; the checkout link. All you have to do is create a checkout link in Speed test mode. Now, make a lightning testnet payment or a partial on-chain testnet payment.

Once done, you can retrieve the same checkout link and check its status. You will notice that your actions have affected the test mode data on your Speed account. This implies that your checkout link resource integration is successful.

There are lots of Lightning/Bitcoin wallets available for this. Picking the right one is a matter of personal preference, but the following references might help.

LN.dev is a lightning network testnet application developed by Speed. This allows you to manage test mode funds of all your Speed accounts on a single web interface. There are no additional connection steps other than basic sign-up. Just sign in and send or receive test payments.
