Sandbox Mode is a basic test tool normally for developers that completely simulates the process of payment, error responses, and reports. If you wish to know how it feels to make/receive payment, this is a featured tool that you can use.
First, you will need to create a Sandbox account at https://developer.authorize.net/sandbox/. Make sure to know the API login and Transaction Key. And this is also not the same as the Sandbox Mode on your live account.
Once you have created your account at https://developer.authorize.net/sandbox/, you will receive an email from them about the details of your new developer/test account. You will also receive dummy credit card numbers which you can run your simulation.
