Regions, Environments and Locales

This chapter explains how and why the URLs that you use to access Connector Admin Interface and Merchant Backend and to include Connector Script, differ for the various combinations of regions, enviroments and locales.

See chapter URLs for a complete list of these URLs.

Regions

LaterPay supports two regions: US and EU. They are separate systems that differ in various aspects like currency, taxes, payment methods and more.

The most prominent difference is currency:

Region Currency
EU EUR
US USD

Connector offers dedicated instances that are bound to either of LaterPay’s regions: EU or US.

Regions are reflected in the URL that you use to access Connector Admin Interface and Merchant Backend and the URL of Connector Script.

Environments

Alongside the Live environment, LaterPay offers a separate Sandbox environment for testing and development purposes. It is identical to the Live environment in features and API, however, transactions in the Sandbox environment are not booked or credited to your merchant account.

Environment Details
Sandbox For testing and development only
Live For production use

Connector offers dedicated instances that are bound to either of LaterPay’s environments: Live or Sandbox.

Environments are reflected in the URL that you use to access Connector Admin Interface and Merchant Backend and the URL of Connector Script.

Locales

Connector Script’s user interface elements come in two locales out of the box:

Locale Code used in URL of Connector Script
English (US) en-us
German (Germany) de-de

Locales affect the language, number formatting and certain aspects of typography, like quotation marks.

Locales are reflected in the URL of Connector Script.

However, these are only defaults. You can always translate Connector Scripts’s user interface elements into another language and customize strings via In-Page Configuration Translations.
