AdWords API Test Account doesn't work

Today, I applied for Google Adwords API basic accounts.

Although I applied for Google Adowrds API today, my account is still test account.


I tried to make API request with this test account, but I got this error.


suds.WebFault: Server raised fault: '[QuotaCheckError.DEVELOPER_TOKEN_NOT_APPROVED @ ; trigger:'<null>']'

Based on what I saw there, I should be able to make test request, but it doesn't work.


Your application will need to be approved (see below). However, you can start developing and experimenting with the API immediately, using test accounts. See Make Your First API Call for details.

a live, active, production, manager-account with proper billing information

must be used to request a proper api-token -- the terms-and-conditions

must also be accepted within the production manager-account.

then, the developer-token may be used with a test-account --
but cannot be used with active, live, production, accounts

until the initial developer-token has been approved.

otherwise, the api-compliance-center may be contacted directly --

otherwise, any follow-up questions or issues
should likely be addressed in the api-forum:!forum/adwords-api
