AIM - (TESTMODE) The credit card number is invalid

If I try and use 4111 1111 1111 1111 as the test credit card #, it works fine.

But, when I try to use 4007 0000 0000 0027 or 4222 2222 2222 2222 (with specific amount), it

starts giving me the 'The credit card number is invalid' error. Any ideas why ?

Good Morning!

 

Generally the 4111-1111-1111-1111 is used to simulate approved transactions. The credit card number 4222-2222-2222-2222 is used to test specific decline AVS (Address Verification System) codes.

 

Please note that some test credit card numbers are also processor dependent. I would just stick to 4111****************** to generate an approval if this is the desired result.

 

Thank You!

Thanks for the prompt reply !

But, what do you mean by "processor dependent" ?

Your Authorize.Net merchant account is configured with a back-end processor.

 

+ TSYS
+ Global Payments (GPN)
+ Elavon
+ First Data Nashville

 

I've had some test credit card numbers not work because of the configured back-end processor. Generally the 4111-1111-1111-1111 works with all supported processors.

CORRECTION IN LAST POST:

 

The test credit card number used to generate specific AVS responses is 13 digits, not 16 digits; it should read:

 

4222-222-222-222

 

NOT

 

4222-2222-2222-2222

 

The reason why you received the error message "invalid credit card number" was because of this.

 

Thanks!
