Test account data

Please use this test account data in order to test your API implementation:

// shop_name is the API name, replace 'ShopName 123' with your API name. Create API entry at
$shop_name = 'apicontest';

// your actual API password
$shop_password = 'aIXncDlApUS4nexB';

// shop_secret_key is your API secret_key, it's shown one time after you created the new API entry, if you didn't write it down you can reset it in your API settings
$shop_secret_key = '07fc884cf02af307400a9df4f2d15490';

// prepare options to create a new order, more about it here:
$options = [
  // notificationURL is used for notification about order's status change
