Authorize.net Test Account

Authorize.net production credentials cannot be used in Test Mode. To test a transaction thru Authorize.net, merchants sometimes put their production accounts into the “Test modes” from their Authorize.net accounts, which returns dummy data for live transactions. However, this will not work either, as these are still production credentials.

To use the module in Test Mode, you should get a set of dedicated test credentials from Authorize.net. These work with Test Mode enabled in the module. Your production Authorize.net credentials should always be live, and never set to test mode.

You can apply for a test account here https://developer.authorize.net/sandbox/. When you have your Authorize.Net Test Account, enter it under gateway section in the module settings and check the Test Mode checkbox.
