It's important to note that when you first start with, your account is in "Test Mode". This allows you to test transactions on your site. Until you turn off test mode and go into Live mode, then transactions won't actually be processed. They will look like they are going through (for testing purposes) but the card won't actually get billed. It's very important that you go into Live Mode when you are ready to start accepting money for real.
