How can we expect test card to pass on live mode. It should show that it's a testing card and can't be used on live mode.


Then, how can we prevent testing cards from getting tokenized.

You are confusing tokenization with authorization. A payment with a test card will not be approved in production.

If that is how it works then anyone can use testing card and placed the order.

Uhm, no. Tokenization is the process of tokenizing the card data, not authorizing the card. If you were to attempt a payment with a token from a test card the payment would fail in production.

okay, got your point but as soon as we enter the testing card details, it should show the error there as i am using ecommerce API in which after card tokenize, i am creating an order and after that it processes to payment then on last step it will fail instead of getting failed on entering card details step.

That isn't how it works, authorizations may cost the merchant money, you don't want tokenization to be performing an authorization. Tokenization just tokenizes the card data, that is it. When a card is saved on file (https://docs.clover.com/docs/ecommerce-saving-card) we do perform an authorization to ensure the card is valid.
