Use a faucet like this one.

A video outlining its usage can be found here.

You do not need 100 Ether. Transaction gas costs a negligible amount of Ether.

Why would you pay for testnet Ether? It has no value.

  • Hi Thomas, Thanks for your Guide lines. I need 100 ETH for testing few things with my smart contracts. I would love to pay as I can't wait to mine them, I need them urgently for let my development work go. – Amit Modi Aug 11 '17 at 15:04
  • Transactions to execute smart contracts cost less than 0.01 Ether. The Faucet above will give you 5 Ether every 24 hours. – Thomas Clowes Aug 11 '17 at 17:54

I have been using Rinkeby test net and it has been working fine for me. (better than Ropsten) It's free, you don't have to pay anything.

Steps:

  1. Install the metamask plugin from the chrome store.

  2. After you create an account, select the rinkeby testnet from the top

enter image description here

  1. Press the BUY button & you would see the below screen, enter image description here

  2. Press the "RINKEBY TEST FAUCET" button and you browser would open the Rinkeby site.

  3. Now press the button on the left panel called "Crypto Faucet".

  4. A screen would display asking for your Ethereum address. The catch here is that you would need to create a gist on github with your address in it and paste the gist url here.

  5. After pasting the gist url and pressing the 'Give me Ether" button, you would be rewarded the ether in your account.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Ajay
