How do I change the 'test' tokens to 'live'?

The first step is the follow this link. This takes you to ‘Test Mode’ in our documentation section.

Test mode is the default mode of operation for every newly-created account. Test mode allows you to familiarise yourself with the service in a “sandbox” environment.

Now that you are familiar with the Taxamo merchant portal, and set-up, you need to change to production stage (live) so that you can start operating under the new 2015 EU digital VAT rules.

When using test tokens you were able to perform as many ‘transactions’ as you wanted to so as to evaluate the Taxamo platform.

Now you need to apply live tokens so that you can select your preferred Taxamo price package (based on transaction volume) register your business details and enter payment information (if you have not done it already).

You cannot go into production mode without entering your business details, as your location is a crucial element of the how the new EU VAT rules operate.

You can register your business details on the Taxamo merchant portal here.

Even with production mode enabled, you still have access to two sets of access tokens: test mode and production mode. Depending on the tokens that you use, the appropriate mode will be applied.

To apply the live production tokens just go to Merchant Portal > Integrate > API tokens. In the API tokens section you will find your live production tokens, public and private.
