How to start

1. Install the Commerce Applications SDK
2. Order a Developer Kit to test your application on a device. We now offer two Developer Kit Devices - Carbon-10 and P400.


Commerce Applications SDK

Verifone Commerce Application SDK can be run on a PC with a Windows 7, 8, or 10, or on MacOS 10.9. The SDK is a plugin for the Android Studio IDE.

The Commerce Applications SDK includes a simulator that can be used for testing both the Terminal Commerce as well Android and Android Commerce applications. Instructions for using the simulator can be found under the title Develop  in the Developer Central.

If you have not yet installed the SDK, please visit the Download the SDK page.


Developer Kit

With Developer Kit one can complete end-to-end testing in a real device, using the safe Entitlement Services Sandbox environment for external connections. One can simulate payment actions without making real payments by using debit and credit cards, as well NFC-based mobile payment solutions.   

Applications under testing can be side loaded into the Development Kit, or installed over the internet. However, production-signed applications from the  Marketplace cannot be installed on a Development Kit.

One needs to side load test signed application packages. In the Commerce Applications SDK term, a Test Package is used for exporting app packages that can be installed on a Developer Kit.
