there is no such concept as using a test-account to sign-up
for api-access -- a live, active, production, my-client-center

(mcc)  manager-account, is required for any level of api access.


(1) developer-token:
after the live, active, production, manager-account
has signed-up for the developer-token, the assigned
token may then be used with a test-account --
to test the application prior to approval.


(2) basic-access:
then, if basic-access is requested via the product-manager-account,
using the developer-token, the account and application details will
be reviewed by google's api-policy-and-conformance-teams, for any
policy related issues.


only if the basic-access application is approved, and the
token activated, will api-access be given to live-accounts.


generally, google tends to prefer a developer (token) to be associated
with a management-account that is, at least, actively serving ads --
such as, an advertising agency or partner, before beginning development.


basic-access quotas can support most users and organizations.


(3) standard-access:

if the application is part of a large organization or will be used by

many multiple users, is production-quality, is able to meet google's

minimum-functionality-requirements, and is also ready for a formal

demo, google may be contacted to request standard-access.


there is an api-forum for clarification, more authoritative answers,
and any follow-up or additional questions, or related issues --!forum/adwords-api
