What is Rutter Sandbox?

The Rutter Sandbox is an environment that enables developers to test APIs without the need to authenticate merchants via Rutter Link. The sandbox contains realistic anonymized data so that you can build your models with a certain level of confidence, confirm our data model works for your business, and verify your integration is functioning properly.
