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.
