See this article on account setup
Note: At the moment you will still have to use the normal ValEx interface if you want to see the in-progress status's of your jobs (i.e. accepted, assigned, inspected, delayed). However this will be implemented so you can receive updates through webservices soon
ValEx has a dedicated test environment located at http://vxtest.valex.com.au. You'll be given a username, and password; and WSDLs. The first is a simple test soap service, to check authentication works via an auth() method and provide rudimentary debugging via repeat(). The second is a fully functional end point for ordering valuations.
Some clients using .NET have difficulty connecting to us, and may find this article useful.

Ordering a valuation through ValEx
Receiving Completed Valuation Reports and Status updates
Soap service methods
In general, we recommend providing the methods: statusUpdate(lixi_workflow_xml), cancel(lixi_valuation_xml), response(lixi_valuation_xml). statusUpdate() is where we send appointment, inspection, and other progress updates. cancel() and response() are how we return our full valuation data and invoice to your system.
