If a fraudster wants to check that they can use their stolen card data to make purchases, they may run test transactions on e-Commerce stores. If the transactions are approved, the fraudster knows that the card data is valid and that they can then continue to use the card data for further transactions.
Card testing transactions are typically for small dollar amounts and can happen within seconds or minutes of each other.
