      #Going live

      When you are ready to go live, you need to:

      1. Configure production environment 

      Similar to the sandbox environment configuration, complete the production system setup by changing the following items:

      • Public key
      • Certificates
      • Endpoints
      • File exchange settings
      • Gateway
      • Client-Id

      1. Launch your application

      Launch your application with the Alipay Developers integration platform so that the Client ID is activated for the production environment.

      1. Deploy to production 

      In the production environment, the processes of calling APIs, handling notifications, and processing reconciliation files are the same as that in the sandbox development environment. 


      Follow the checklist below to ensure that you have completed core steps for going live:


      Set up live keys

      Update gateway endpoints

      Configure the gateway URLs

      Use the production client ID

      Launch your application. The live key and gateway settings are activated now.

      1. Perform a real transaction with a real wallet account or bank card.
      2. Confirm the notification.

      Verify settlement and reconciliation files.
