Troubleshooting - list of common pitfalls

Before contacting support, please run through the list of common pitfalls. This will save both you and us a lot of time. Here we go with the list.

Authentication error upon request

Mixing up sandbox and live accounts

It is very easy to mix up Live and Sandbox environments. Since the two systems are totally separated, you can have an account with the same e-mail address in both systems. Double check, if you can not log on.

Forgot to update POSKey to live

It is very easy to mix up Live and Sandbox environments. A very common mistake is to not update the POSKey to the Live server when going live. Same goes to URL-s.

Shop not approved

Log on to Barion Web App and check if your shop is approved and open. The Sandbox server does it automatically, but the Live requires human approval.

Authentication error upon request

If you have managed to avoid all problems mentioned above, yet you still receive an API response showing 'Authentication error', check your request JSON for errors. Broken multibyte strings or unescaped special characters can render the JSON unparseable, which prevents the Barion API from identifying your POSKey, resulting in an authentication error.
