Two Types of PayUMoney integration errors

First of all we will discuss the errors which occurs due to account not active. Under this heading we will see problems occurred due to account activation.
Reasons for ‘Sorry, Some Problem Occurred’ error message
Even though I used valid merchant key and salt, I received this error. There is certain reasons due to which you may fall into this problem
Reason 1 : Not using valid merchant key and salt :
Do not use merchant key and salt of production environment in sandbox. In case you are doing so, you are liable to get this error. Same way you should not use Sandbox environment credentials for production environment. In case of PayUMoney merchant key and salt is different for production and sandbox environment.
Reason 2 : PayUMoney account is not activated :
Once you register with PayUmoney website, you get your credentials immediately. Wait! You have credentials but your account is not activated.
Recently PayUMoney has changed their process. This is for both production and sandbox. To start with website integration, you need an active account. So get your account activated. After that you can start integration. This is due to spammers and fake users. Spammers are always bad. To stop bad practices, they follow legal process.
PayUmoney sends legal agreement paper at your business address. Please sign the agreement. Once it is signed, send it back to PayUMoney. Once they receive signed agreement, they approve your account. They will activate your test account in a day or two. Please take help of their customer support to understand it.
Once your account is active, you can test your integration code. It will work. You can start receiving payments as well.
In case you have made above two mistakes, please correct them.
Type 2. Problem or errors occurred due to integration code
