Sponsored Gateway Provider: When the Gateway Provider has a first customer, which means they’ve been named by the OBP during their on-boarding, the Gateway Provider becomes ‘Sponsored’. From that moment the Gateway Provider will be contacted to start the manual on-boarding in order to have access to the EU Hub.
Registered Gateway Provider: The Gateway Provider becomes ‘Registered’ when they’ve signed the License Agreement with EMVO and a Support Contract with Solidsoft. Solidsoft will guide the Gateway Provider to get access to their dedicated Integrated Test Environment. This Connection can be used as a sandbox environment to develop the Connection for their customers.
Certified Gateway Provider: A ‘Certified Gateway Provider’ means that the first customer passed successfully the Full-Certification Test via their Gateway Connection. Next OBPs who intent to use this Certified Gateway Provider are allowed to perform a mini-certification test in the Integrated Quality Environment.
