When I completed testing with PayPal


I have posted my earlier posts related to PayPal, because currently I was involved in integration testing of PayPal with my project cart module. I am not explaining here what Issues I got in my application or what was my test cases. But I want to say that when you do test, you can't sure that PayPal is working 100% fine, because no software is 100% bug free :) I am here going to prove same:

1) When I tested PayPal, I tested the reference transaction through PayPal and I am sure what I got is PayPal application issue. I did a transaction in live mode with test card number and as expected, transaction get denied. But when I generated the reference transaction with this transacion, the new transaction was with status "approved". Definately PayPal issue.

2) One another thing to share is card expiry date. In test mode, PayPal does not verify the card expiration date (and it should be), but about in Live mode? I got it, in Live mode also, PayPal was not verifying the card expiration date.

*Disclaimer: Issue reported in point (2), may or may not be issue. It may be customer requirement dependent also. So, I am not 100% sure, after all I am a website tester not the website owner :)

Testing with test card for order payments


I get a real scenario when we can say that we can't believe on test results using test card numbers. I was doing testing of my application order process module with payment gateway PayPal integration. The test card I used for payment on my test server give me a test pass result for a scenario when user place an order and use Gift card also during checkout, but the same scenario fails when tested with live card. I really disappointed with it. So friends when you do this type of test, I will advice you all to repeat your test with live card on live server. In small companies or even in CMM5 level companies also, generally all test cases are not repeated with live card.
