sandbox testing errors "The merchant does not accept this type of credit card"

I used the testing guide (http://developer.authorize.net/hello_world/testing_guide/)  to test on the sandbox environment. The visa and mastercard and jcb were successful, but american express, discover, and diners club cards failed:  "Transaction Error : 17 The merchant does not accept this type of credit card."  Why would the test environment not accept those cards, or it something else?  Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hello @cltw

 

If you recently created a sandbox account, the card brands you mentioned were not enabled due to an error.  Please use the contact us form and request to enable all card brands for your account.
