Sandbox testing

Sandbox behavior is limited to testing the app switch flow that returns a payment method nonce. As a result:

  • The app switch flow will show a test merchant with Braintree's logo instead of your own business's details
  • A successful app switch will always return a nonce for a test user named VenmoJoe
  • Purchases made in sandbox will not be reflected in the Venmo app
  • Removing a connection from Venmo to a sandbox app is not allowed. Attempting to do so will result in a 400 response.

If you would like to use a test nonce in the Braintree sandbox, please use fake-venmo-account-nonce.

Go live

Once you’ve finished testing your integration and you’re ready to go live, you’ll need to set up Venmo in your production Control Panel and complete your application. We will review your application and enable Venmo payments for your production environment upon approval.
