Currently gpi testing for FIN messages for vendors is being held in Vendor Test Bed (VTB), which is an integral part of the gpi Compatible Application process. When applying for a gpi label Third Party Providers must support all the mandatory functionalities mentioned in official gpi documentation.
The purpose of the gpi VTB is to offer Third Party Providers the opportunity to test and validate their gpi application’s readiness for SWIFT gpi focusing on FIN messages. This enables Third Party Providers to offer only well-tested applications, thereby reducing additional delays and costly bug fixes for gpi customers.
To qualify for SWIFT Compatible Programme, applications must offer a set of business functions described in the gpi related documentation.
SWIFT experts award the label after a positive Technical and Functional validation.
Please note: In order to use the Vendor Test Bed (VTB), you need the Connectivity and Alliance packs, as well as a subscription to the messaging services and solutions.

Validation is being performed in gpi Customer Automated Testing. gCAT interacts as a gpi counterparty in an automated manner based on pre- defined test cases. The test cases allowed with gCAT are communicated to the partners as part of their technical validation.
Provide a product walk-through (demo of the application capabilities) to SWIFT to explain how the gpi functionality is exposed to clients. The application provider makes available a complete set of documentation, including feature overview user manuals, as well as a customer onboarding journey plan.
