Simulate failed transactions

If you want to see the credit card error messages that might be displayed to a customer during checkout, you can simulate a number of different failed transactions:

  • Use credit card number 4000000000000002 to generate a card declined message.
  • Use credit card number 4242424242424241 to generate an incorrect number message.
  • Use credit card number 4000000000000259 to simulate a disputed transaction.
  • Use an invalid expiry month, for example 13, to generate an invalid expiry month message.
  • Use an expiry year in the past to generate an invalid expiry year message.
  • Use a two-digit CVV number to generate an invalid CVV message.

Note: You'll have to deactivate test mode in order for customers to pay for their order using a credit card.
