    testing with PayPal sandbox...


    For all you PayPal nuts out there, I have a question for you....

    I can't seem to log in with my test buyer account after hitting a Paypal "Pay Now" button...the button does transfer me to PayPal's site where I'm prompted to log in...I put in the correct email address and password, and then submit...I get the following error:

    "The email address you have entered does not match our records. Please try again. If you're not sure you have a PayPal account, you can try to sign up again."

    I followed the sandbox tutorial to create the test buyer account, and I believe everything is set up correctly...What could be the problem?

    * I would ask PayPal, but they don't appear to offer support for the sandbox

    Thanx.

    setting up the sandbox was a pain for me, too; but, it finally worked.

    i remember first having to setup a sandbox account, and then creating the test accounts; going so far as "confirming" my bank account and email.

    have you gone through those steps already?

    Paypal support is almost zero, they reply you after 5 days.

    Scott,
    I am new to this forum, but I have read the messages in this area and I am having the same issues in regards to putting the correct URL into the code. At first, I was connecting to the Paypal Live site so it would not recognize my sandbox email account (understandable) but then I saw the "other" proposed URL and inserted that into the code instead. However, it just takes me to the Developer Login which is not where I thought I would be directed. But let me share this with everyone: I did actually somehow negotiate my way on the phone to have Paypal support help me with this problem. While people are correct that Paypal does not support it, I emailed my issue to a tech at Paypal, and he informed me about the change to the URL. I inserted the URL, as I previously explained above, but it took me to the Developer Login. I replied to him and stated where I was routed to and he replied,

    "My mistake, also change <input value="nicpaypalbusiness@ideastar.com" name="business" type="hidden"> to <input value="__your-internal-to-sandbox-emailaccount___" name="business" type="hidden"> . put in your sandbox email account which we confirmed into there in place of __your-internal-to-sandbox-emailaccount__"

    I tried this, but it still did not work the way I thought it would. I responded to him via email but he has not returned my mail.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I would appreciate anyone's help.

    Thanks,
    LeLynn~

    In order to test , you need to login to first developer central account and then to sandbox account and then you try testing your code like adding something in your shopping bag , then it should work...
