Now how would i suppose to know that is my transaction is successful or not?
NOTE: i am using sandbox credentials

Put in code 19


Response Reason Code: 19


Response Reason Text: An error occurred during processing. Please try again in 5 minutes.


Integration Team Suggestions: This error message is displayed when there is a connection issue between Authorize.Net and the credit card processor. It results from Authorize.Net not receiving data in response to the transaction request we sent to the credit card processor. This type of issue is usually fixed quickly and we continue to work towards eliminating these types of connectivity issues. In some cases it may also be due to Internet congestion, and not related to either of our systems.


Repeated attempts to process a transaction during this connectivity breakdown may result in multiple authorizations to the credit card. To prevent this from happening, you can use the following test card:


Test Visa Card Number: 4012888818888

Expiration Date: 04/10


When a decline message appears for this card in Virtual Terminal, rather than the "Try again in 5 minutes" error message, this means the connectivity problem has been resolved and transactions can be processed again normally.


i have tried his as well. now the question is how would i suppose to track connection issue between Authorize.Net and the credit card processor. 


i am using sand box credentials already so do u think this is the problem?

The sandbox does occasionally have problems. You'd have to ask a mod whether that's what's happening here, though.
