Card To Enable Me To Test Online Orders Thoroughly?
Q: Does anyone know how or where to obtain a dummy Credit Card and Debit Card to enable me to test online orders thoroughly? At the moment we test up to the point when a Credit/Debit card entry is required. Our only approach then is to type in a False card number and details and have the Buynet system reject the card. This is obviously unsatisfactory as we would like to verify the order system completely and then cancel the order. Apart from using my own cards (which is also unsatisfactory) we have failed to come up with any other method.
A: - The company calls up their friendly banker and opens a dummy charge account. The bank should be quite helpful on this issue. Likewise, you ought to be able to contact Buynet and see if they have any dummy accounts that they recognize as "test accounts" for "good", "declined", "reversed", and any other transactions of interest. - In the system you are testing, how are the credit cards validated? For example, many online systems do validation through CyberSource. CyberSource provides a test API which should be called by your test systems. Cybersource has all the documention you would need in order to effectively test the credit portion of your system. And they provide not only test credit card numbers for each of the major credit cards, but specific charge amounts that can be used to test each of the error conditions encountered during credit card use - card expired, over the credit limit, etc, etc. You really need to learn more about your system-under-test in order to understand how you can test the credit card portion of it.
