      Figure 1. System development process


      Before proceeding to the production environment, you must complete the Sandbox integration and successfully pass the sandbox testing and acceptance process (if any).


      #Migrate from Sandbox to Production

      To migrate from sandbox to production, complete the following updates.


      #Modify the API URL path

      Remove the sandbox from the url path. Change the URL path of the create API from /ams/sandbox/api/v1/payments/create to /ams/api/v1/payments/create


      For example, the URL for the sandbox environment:

      copy
      //sandbox
      https://open-sea.alipay.com/ams/sandbox/api/v1/payments/create


      The URL for the production environment:

      copy
      //production
      https://open-sea.alipay.com/ams/api/v1/payments/create


      #Update the Client ID

      Use the Client ID for production environment. For information on how to obtain the Client ID, see Integration preparation.


      #Update Public key

      Use the public key that is used in production environment. For information on how to obtain the Client ID, see Integration preparation.


      #Update SFTP access

      You must contact Alipay Technical Support (overseas_support@service.alibaba.com) to obtain new SFTP account and white list your production server's IPs. The SFTP server hostname remains the same. 


      #Launch your application

      Go to Alipay Developer Center to launch your application.

      Note:

      Only after you sign the business contract with Alipay, you can launch an application.


      #Conduct pilot test

      After migrating to production, you (and your technical service provider, if any) need to join the User Acceptance Test (UAT). Alipay will lead UAT schedule and design test cases. When UAT is passed, a UAT report is generated and delivered to all participants.


      To execute test cases, go to Alipay Developer Center, and then locate Test Suites under Acceptance Test.


      #Go live

      Now you are all set and can open to pubic.
