It provides a flexible platform for anyone looking for a user-friendly, scalable and web-based solution for payment host testing.

Acquirer or issuer host implementations are complex and require continuous and adaptable testing. Hosts must undergo testing and certification prior to partner onboarding and before rollout to production. The UL Host Testing Solution helps simplify complex testing processes and operations. This tool can help you identify issues earlier and adapt faster by testing multiple components in the payment infrastructure host systems through simulation and automation. 

The UL Host Testing Solution includes a complete set of modules for payment host testing. Any payment host relies on external systems, which require either connectivity to other active components or a way to simulate them. The UL Host Testing Solution comes with multiple simulation modules to maximize test coverage and remove dependencies on different interfaces.

  • Support for multiple payment messages over various protocols (EMV, contactless, e-commerce, etc.)
  • Continuous testing (regression and functional) to check consistent host quality
  • Test intelligence to simplify the analysis and remediation of defects
  • Automatic message analysis
  • Deep protocol interpretation, including EMV details and ISO 8583 field interpretation
  • Ability to customize and save different test environment settings
