  • Use Mollie test credentials to test credit/debit cards.
  • Apple Pay Direct works only in a production environment (in either test or live mode), and on Apple devices or Safari.
  • Test Apple Pay Direct and the Bancontact QR code by making actual payments, as they only work in live mode.

Make a test payment
