By default, Helcim merchants cannot send full card numbers, expiry dates, or CVV numbers, via the API. Real credit cards should never be used for testing as per PCI-DSS compliance requirements.
Test cards processed on a developer test account can be used to replicate the behaviour of a production environment. This will reduce the security scope and PCI-DSS compliant requirements of merchants while testing and integrating with Helcim.
Transactions processed with test credit cards on a production account and processing terminal, will be declined by the card networks with an "Invalid Issuer" decline message and charges may apply.
|Card Type||Card Number||Expiry Month||Expiry Year||CVV|
We encourage merchants to verify and tokenize these test card numbers using the HelcimPay.js tool and send the respective card token through the Process Purchase Transaction endpoint to replicate a live transaction flow.
Alternatively you can utilize HelcimPay.js to process purchase transactions without the need to call additional API endpoints.
Before you can use test credit card numbers to test your transaction flows with the Helcim API, you will need to have a developer test account created. For more information on requesting a test account, please review the Developer Test Accounts documentation.
