[resolved] Paypal sandbox (11 posts)

    I'm new to this topic altogether so I have a few questions listed below concerning Paypal sandbox and Marketpress.

    1. Do I have to use real details for PayPal sandbox?

    2. Could I just make up fake details including e-mail and bank account details?

    3. If I set up Paypal sandbox details in my company's wordpress website will it affect the other wordpress websites or just the one I set it up for?

    4. Will any details processed in the checkout (after sandbox has been setup) be properly processed and treated as a real order?

    As I'm totally new to this, please note down anything else I should know about Paypal sandbox. I'm fine with everything else in Marketpress.

    I've now made the sandbox accounts but they lack personal details, and I need this as my website compares the shipping details you enter agaisnt PayPal details. I don't really want to test a real account as I don't want to accidently spend any money.

    Anyone know how to add personal details such as address and full name?

    Hi @jimleeder,

    Greetings and thanks for posting here! :)

    Glad you got that sandbox initially setup and yep, you can use fake information there. And nope, it won't generate a real order on PayPal's end but MarketPress should show real orders for that. That'll help you to test it all.

    Also, you can add name and address during the checkout process in MarketPress. Is that what you were asking?

    Cheers,
    David

    I'm using my proper paypal account on the sandbox to test (no card details saved into it). Is it safe to use this account without entering my card details? Will no money go through the sandbox no matter what?

    Hi @jimleeder,

    That's correct, no real money gets transferred through sandbox accounts.

    Cheers,
    David

    Back to my earlier question about entering personal details such as the address, I meant the paypal sandbox account. When I make a buyer or seller sandbox account theres nowhere to add an address, which forces me to use my proper paypal account on my website in sandbox mode.

    Hi @jimleeder,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Do you want to add personal details like address to your Sandbox test accounts?

    If yes then could you please tell me why do you want to add it so that i can help you?

    Kind Regards,

    Its because on my company's website using Marketpress Paypal only starts if the shipping address is the same as the paypal account. Since an address is required in the shipping, and not included in the sandbox account, the account can't be used for testing.

    However we are using a method now which stops the shipping appearing, but I would still like to know if its possible to add an address to a sandbox account.

    Hi @jimleeder,

    I didn't find any option to add address in the paypal sandbox account except adding only country.

    You will find more information about Paypal Sandbox account on the following page.
