If the Merchant Account is in live mode, we recommend using a credit card number of your own to test the transaction. The payment can either be refunded by someone at your organization, or you can contact the credit card processor to ask them not to process it. You can also contact your credit card processor to inquire if they have any recommended procedures for testing credit card transactions [Contact PayPal] [Contact IATS].

If the Merchant Account is still set to demo mode, the following fake credit card information can be used:
  • Credit Card Number: 4111111111111111
  • Card Type: Visa
  • Expiration Date: Any date in the future
  • CVV: Any three digit number
Note: Test credit cards are provided by the credit card companies, not Blackbaud. If the above Visa example doesn't work, please refer to What test credit card numbers are available to process test credit card transactions?
