Interacting with Kable's Live and Test environments
Kable operates in two distinct environments, Live and Test .
The Live environment is for your production traffic and customers' production usage.
All usage in the Live environment is billable. Your customers' traffic in the Live environment will be billed according to their plans. Your net traffic in the Live environment will be considered billable by Kable.
The Test environment is for non-production traffic. You may use the Test environment for your own development purposes while building and testing your integration with Kable. You may also use the Test environment within your own customer-facing Test or Sandbox environment to monitor your customers' Test usage.
Usage in the Test environment is not billable. Kable will never charge your customers nor you for traffic in the Test environment.
If you need require access to additional environments beyond Live and Test, please reach out at [email protected] for Enterprise support.
