Test Credit Card Works to Pay on Production

Our application has been deployed on production and during testing our app web checkout on prod with our prod merchant account we found that we can pay with test visa card (for example, 4242 4242 4242 4242) to create real orders. We're using e-commerce endpoint https://scl.clover.com/v1/orders to create order and https://scl.clover.com/v1/orders/id/pay to pay for it, and we use https://api.clover.com/pakms/apikey to get token for hosted iframe. I also confirmed that production sdk https://checkout.clover.com/sdk.js is used on frontend. I can also see that order is being created in our merchant's account, attached screenshot with payment details as I see it in admin dashboard.

I assume this is either a test or demo production account, in which case your merchant is blackholed - hitting a mock gateway that accepts all transactions..

What should be done to make it a real production account? Our application has been approved on December 8th, 2021. In our developer dashboard the app is in Published status.

I am not certain what you are trying to accomplish but this has nothing to do with the status of your app or developer account. In order to process real credit cards you need to be a Clover merchant.

We are basically trying to make sure prod checkout works by making an order for our app prod merchant. Is my understanding correct that test credit card works only because our prod merchant is considered to be not a real Clover merchant? Is there any documentation on "blackholed" merchant?

Yes, your understanding is correct, test credit cards do not work when hitting the real gateway. I am not sure what documentation you are looking for. All payments will be approved when blackholed.
