Functional Testing of Payment System

‘This project was of great importance to us because we work with a very demanding group of customers that value their time and put the main emphasis on convenience and simplicity of online payments. We trusted A1QA with that job because they were very fast to provide us with a convenient working schedule and test scenarios for our ongoing project...’
