How to propperly test with Paypall Sandbox? was created by Cosmin Circu
Hi all

I`ve been reading a few things about the Paypal Sandbox. Still, I want to have it all clear as I do not think I`ve got it right.

In order to test the plans:
1) In developer.paypal.com / Sandbox, I`ve created a PERSONAL and a BUSINESS account with corresponding email addresses.
2) In the PayPal plugin I`ve set ( was already set ) PayPal mode --> test mode
3) In the PayPal plugin, I`ve set at Paypal Email field my sandbox BUSINESS account`s email
4) Tried to create a subscription ( for a new user ) with the sandbox PERSONAL account`s email
5) Now it seems ( not 100% sure ) that I was charged the cost of the subscription as it asked for all my cards details and i got a statement.

I suppose the setup for the sandbox is not correct.
Any help would be much appreciated

Kind regards
Cosmin

Hi Cosmin

Check the URL when you are being redirected to PayPal, is it www.sandbox.paypal.com ? if so, you should not being charged at all

Maybe for test mode, you should use our test PayPal account for testing:

1. Enter This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. into PayPal Email parameter of the payment plugin

2. When you subscribe and being redirected to PayPal for making payment, use this account thucdam84-buyer@yahoo.com/dangthucdam for making payment

Regards,

Tuan

Hi Tuan

I have noticed that Paypal created the accounts "facilitator" and "buyer" but did not know I had to use them. I`ll try with my credentials and if they will not work I`ll go for yours.

Kind regards
Cosmin

PS: I do not think my credit card was charged after all ;)

OK Cosmin. It would be so strange if PayPal charges your credit card on test mode :)
