What are Sandbox and Production?

Postmen Sandbox environment is a testing environment for users to test the carrier integration before moving to production. Any labels generated at the Sandbox environment will be only for testing and cannot be used for actual shipping, and of course you won't be charged either. Most carriers provide both testing credentials and production credentials, and you can enter them separately at Postmen.

Some users actually go straight to production as many carriers (e.g. UPS) do not charge for the production labels printed as long as it is shipped. Those carriers will only charge when the shipment is picked up and scanned.

Some carriers like DHL or FedEx require users to print out testing labels for verification before they can provide production credentials or enable label printing function for production credentials.
