Posted by Claire Mackerras

End to end testing verifies whether the flow of an application is right from the very start to finish and if it is processing as per the expectations or not. It helps to detect issues in sub-systems and increases confidence in the overall software product. Hence, the purpose of End-to-End Testing is to monitor a complete system. 

End To End Testing Process activities:

  •  Thorough Study of end to end testing requirements
  •  Setup of Test Environment and hardware/software requirements
  • Prepare the list of roles and responsibilities for all systems and its  subsystems
  • Testing methodology and standards
  • Tracking of End to end requirements and designing of test cases
  • Record and save input and output data for each system

Digital Testing

Customer satisfaction is now measured online rather than a physical experience. User experience is on top most priority as numbers of products are already available in the market. If the customer doesn’t have rich experience, the attention will be diverted to the one with better performance. Digital Testing or QA testing, therefore, holds more significant than before.

Importance of Test Automation in the Digital Payment Process:

Most payment transactions occur through ATM cards as well as smartphones through UPI payments. It is of utmost importance that the user-interface and the application at hand are accessible and straightforward 24 by 7.   Testing of critical functionality of payment gateway needs to be tested periodically to ensure high-quality standards. Automation of tests is the best way to achieve the required level of testing.
