To get started using Payment Services for Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source, you must complete a few onboarding steps for connecting your instance with the payments functionality.
This onboarding flow diagram shows the general process for onboarding Payment Services.
After you complete onboarding for sandbox or live payments, financial reporting is accessible from Payment Services in the Admin.
If both sandbox and live payments are onboarded and enabled, you can easily switch between those modes from the Payment Services Home.
In order to use Payment Services, you must have the following available for your instance:
The Services Connector and Services ID modules are automatically installed during the installation of Payment Services. When installation is complete, you can see a new section in the configuration settings (Stores > Settings > Configuration) when you expand Services—Commerce Services Connector.
To learn how to create or access your API keys, see API credentials.
If you do not configure your Commerce Services in the Admin (step 3), you cannot set up sandbox or live payments.
