Setting up PayPal Sandbox


thumb

Recommended Posts

I am starting up a new cart using OScommerce 2.3.4.1 CE and I think I need to set up a PayPal sandbox to test everything on checkout without it actually being live. I've had a PayPal account for years and I entered that info in the regular setup but when I try to retrieve sandbox credentials it wants me to sign up for a business account. Do I need a business account to do this?

Contact me for work on updating existing stores - whether to Phoenix or the new osC when it's released.

Looking for a payment or shipping module? Maybe I've already done it.

You log into the sandbox seller account and look

If you don't know what the sandbox seller account is, look in your pp settings for the email and log in at sandbox.paypal.com

I'll take a look at it but I already tested it live and everything is working. I did try to buy something in sandbox mode but when it went to PayPal to pay, it would not accept my log in to PayPal for some reason.

I might look at it later but for now it's working live. Thanks for your suggestion though.
