Simulating Payment at Australia Post Postal Outlets
The most obvious difference between the Evaluation System and the Production System is that you cannot walk into a Australia Post postal outlet and make a payment into the Evaluation System.
Instead we have provided a way to simulate making payments at our postal outlets, and subsequent settlements.
Whenever you generate a formatted Payment
Report on the Evaluation System, any "pending" payments
are displayed with a "Make Payment" button. When this is
pressed, it generates a payment transaction within the Evaluation
System - the same transaction that comes from the actual postal
outlet in the Production System. In a similar way, the system also
provides a "Settle Payment" button to enable you to
simulate the final settlement of transactions.
