Restrictions on Test credit Cards

Are there any restrictions on the test cards?

 

Is there a maximum number of transactions you can do on a Test credit card on any day?

 

Is there a maximum limit you can charge a Test credit card?

 

Are there any restrictions related to Customer Profile ID, customer payment profile Id?

 

Appreciate any help.

Re: Restrictions on Test credit Cards

If you are using a sandbox it works just like a live account. The test transactions will flag a duplicate charge and deny if you order the same amount for the same address too fast.

 

For customer profiles, I think those actually charge $1 then reverse it. There, I think your limit would be more determined by the issuer of the card you are using.  A while back I was working on a SIM integration and the owner set me up a .01 product to test, so that we could keep the site live while I worked on it.

 

After 70 consecutive transactions, it finally flagged a fraud altert or some such thing with my bank.  It was way up in the morning so I couldn't do anything, but all you'd have to do is contact your bank. On a side note, I find it hilarious how they flag 70 cents all of the sudden, but 69, 68 cents, etc. are apparently fine. I don't know how they set the cutoff or why they would pick that amount.
