White Adyen point-of-sale test card

How to test point-of-sale card transactions with the white (v1) Adyen test card.

This Adyen test card has several "applications" programmed onto it that each simulate a card with a specific brand, language, country, currency, and Cardholder Verification Methods (CVM).

You can view the details of test payments in your test Customer Area under Transactions > Payments.

The card simulates Mastercard and Maestro payment methods. To verify that your cash register and terminal are communicating as expected and to test your reconciliation, no other card payment methods are needed. But as an alternative, you can order test card packs from B2PS.

Card applications

Use the table below to see which application on the test card corresponds with the scenario you want to test.

To try a particular application, use the corresponding currency in your payment request. You can also select an application on the terminal: When the terminal shows Present card, insert the card and select the application on the display.

Application Payment method Issuing country Currency Expiration date Locale PIN PAN
MC NL Mastercard BE EUR 02/28 Dutch 1234 5413 3300 8909 9999
MS EN Maestro BE EUR 02/28 English 1234 6799 9989 0000 0099 990
MC F Mastercard US USD 02/28 French 1234 5413 3300 8999 9990
MC ES Maestro US USD 02/28 Spanish 1234 6799 9989 0000 0999 991
MSR Mastercard US USD 12/25 English 1234 5413 3300 8902 0037

Testing CVMs

To test different CVMs, use different combinations of transaction amount and currency.

If you enter a wrong PIN multiple times, the card is blocked and can't be used anymore.

Application Amount Currency CVM
MC NL >200.00 EUR CVM 1: Enciphered PIN verified online
  >100 EUR CVM 2: Enciphered PIN verified by EMV chip
  0-100 EUR CVM 3: Signature
MS EN >200.00 EUR CVM 1: Enciphered PIN verified online
  >100 EUR CVM 2: Enciphered PIN verified by EMV chip
  0-100 EUR CVM 3: Signature
MC F All All CVM 1: Enciphered PIN verified by EMV chip
MC ES All All CVM 1: Enciphered PIN verified by EMV chip
MSR All All CVM 1: Service code 101 - Signature

For online PIN, with the card inserted in the card reader, the test system will accept any PIN code you enter.

For offline PIN, with the card inserted in the card reader, the transaction will be declined if you enter an invalid PIN.

Simulating declined payments

In general, test payments generate the result Approved. To simulate declined payments, you can change the last three digits of the RequestedAmount that you specify in the payment request.

For example, to test how your integration responds when the issuer suspects fraud, specify an amount with 151 as the last three digits, such as 101.51 or 21.51.

In a classic library integration you can run the same simulations, but the response returns a generic DECLINED_ONLINE posResultCode in most cases. To verify the details of a simulation, you can:

The following table shows:

  • The last three digits of the amount to specify for simulating a specific response.
  • The Result, ErrorCondition,AdditionalResponse.refusalReason, and AdditionalResponse.message from the Terminal API response.

The refusalReason and message are included for additional insight, and should not be coded against. For instructions on how to handle declines, see Declined payments.

Remark: The terminal shows "Incorrect PIN" and then "Enter PIN". Cancel the payment on the terminal to get the failure response.

Raw responses

In our back end, we receive the payment response from card schemes and issuers. In case of a declined payment, we map the raw response to a combination of ErrorCondition, refusalReason, and message and return this in the Terminal API response.

Raw responses provide additional information, but you don't need to test them because you should not code against them. If you base your failure handling logic on raw responses, that might break your integration because acquirers and issuers sometimes change their raw responses without notification.

If nevertheless you want receive the raw response, you can:
