   * Test Mode on our live servers is extremely limited and unfriendly in terms of developing an application. It does not generate a fake approval code other than TESTMD and it does not store a transaction record for you to look up. Further most of the result fields come back blank. This was done on purpose to keep our live server clean of test transactions and reserved for actual live transactions only. A sandbox account will generate approval codes for you, return all the variables you request as well as store a transaction record for you to report on. We keep test mode functional on the live servers because it is a legacy feature that older customers are used to.    * Test Mode on our live servers is extremely limited and unfriendly in terms of developing an application.
