Test Device Purchases

If you used the is_test_device:true flag in your LWA registration request, DRS will treat this as a test device. A replenish API call for a test device will generate a "trial purchase," which simulates a purchase event, including applicable notifications, without charging the customer’s payment instrument or shipping a consumable.

The Order Placed and Item Shipped SNS notifications will be sent. Trial purchases cannot be canceled and will not appear in the customer’s order history.

A test order can be canceled by calling a CancelTestOrder API. The standard order can be canceled by customers through their Amazon account.
