There are several benefits to using AdWords API Test Accounts, which include:

  • Applications can be developed and tested without spending API units
  • Live AdWords campaigns are not affected by applications using test accounts
  • Ads will not be served when testing applications
  • Test accounts do not require an approved developer token

In order to use an AdWords API Test Account, developers must first apply for an AdWords API developer token.

Please note that the AdWords API sandbox is now deprecated per Google:

“The AdWords API sandbox is deprecated and will Sunset on December 15, 2012. Use test accounts instead.”
