Staging environment

Learn and test in staging

We currently use a staging environment to allow developers to set up their integration in a risk free manor. The environment is free and fully functional.

Participant API developers should build their integration in staging and then switch over to the production environment when they are ready to go live.

--header 'x-api-key: MY_ID' \
--header 'x-api-secret: MY_SECRET'
