I've looked through the Analytics API docs and couldn't any info on removing transactions.. Is it possible to remove single transactions?

Or is there any way to tag orders as fraudulent or test orders?

I don't know an "official" way but if you send an transaction with an identical Order-Id it will be added to the original transaction. So by sending a negative revenue you can at least set the revenue to zero (I frankly haven't tested if the transaction is removed if you set the revenue to zero, bit I don't think so).

Note that this will look different if you query the transactions via the API - while the admin interface will show a single transaction for an unique order id the API will report multiple Transactions with the same ID if you re-submit.
