AVS checks - don't seem to work

Hi there,

 

I'm using the AIM method , sending requests from code. The problem is that it doesn't seem to use the AVS checks.

I enabled N,A,Z,W checks and the transaction still goes through.

 

If I enable Y - then the transaction fails.

 

Any idea why it's not checking the address ? I'm testing with a bogus card + bogus address and zip on the test server.

Ok, it works for those exact zip codes - but why doesn't it work for random addresses ?

 

Entering something that's incorrect I'd like to see the response is a transaction declined .

Because the test site don't go to the credit card processor. Or else anyone will use it to test their cc#.

And it is not checking if it is a valid address, it checking if is match the CC billing address.
