Testing eCheck transactions?

Hi All,

 

First time poster, long-time lurker.

 

I'm writing my first integration to the test sandbox and can successfully process CC transactions, but having trouble with eChecks.

 

Can't seem to get anything to go through successfully.

 

I've looked for test ABA/Account numbers, but can't seem to find anything in the eCheck Developer Guide. I've been using:

 

"x_bank_aba_code", "411111111"

"x_bank_acct_num", "411111111"

 

But get the following (partial) response back:

 

  1. 33 
  2. Bank account number is required. 

Are there specific test account numbers/ABA numbers I should  be using?

Have searched the forums but not finding anything regarding this...

 

Any help IS appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Caspian

Hey Caspian,

 

Even though you've been a long-time lurker, let me still officially welcome you to our community. :smileyhappy: Good to have you here!

 

To answer your question, we don't have any eCheck.Net test numbers to use for testing. Instead, what you should use is any bank's valid routing number, and then a random, fake number for the account number. That should work for you.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Thanks,

Mimi

Just do as Mimi said, use any valid ABA number and make up a bank account number. Valid ABA numbers are easy to find on the Internet, especially if you use Google.

Re: Testing eCheck transactions?

Re: Testing eCheck transactions?

ECheck transactions only decline for a very small number of reasons such as the account you are using being over limit.  I would recommend emailing developer@authorize.net with your test account ID and the amount that you are trying to charge.  Theyw ill be able to check and see if the limits on the test account need raised.

Re: Testing eCheck transactions?

I was unable to find a random account number and bank aba code that successfully processes...

 

Do you have any testing numbers, yet?

 

Thanks,

Bridget

Can't you just use yours? Should be right at the bottom of your checks.
