avail1now Posted February 9, 2006 Share Posted February 9, 2006 Sounds like you created your sandbox fake paypal account with the same email address that you have set in your paypal ipn module in osc. You can't do that apparently. You need to create an account as if you were some Joe user coming to your site. For example, if your real PayPal email address is email@example.com and that is what you have set your PayPal IPN payment module to use, then when you login as a customer to the sandbox, create an account with an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org. I wondered the exact same thing about the CC info. I thought it was pretty stupid, but I guess PayPal is using their real code but just in a testing environment. Therefore you have to put in a valid CC number for it to pass validation. Log into the sandbox account, go to adminster accounts, then the dummy account, go to the profile section, then the credit cards section and hit the add a new card button. Ths sandbox will give you a fake Credit card number and info to use. Thanks Gary & Kris for chiming in, I have been banging my head with this "easy" module for over a week. Yes Kris, I stated earlier in this thread that my ipn module email = sandbox email, so now per your comment I changed ipn module email = store paypal account email. Per Gary's comment, I logged into sandbox paypal > profile > financial > credit card > add new card latest test: log in as a user > add cart > confirm order > paypal checkout page > log in with sandbox email account, now I get this message: This invoice has already been paid. For more information, please contact the merchant. Is that how this checkout supposed to work? Do you not expect to be returned to the store after checkout?
