[resolved] PayPal SandBox not working (4 posts)

    We have the SandBox Developers username, password and Signature saved.
    We also have the PayPal mode selected as SandBox, but we still can't get past checkout. "There was a problem connecting to PayPal to setup your purchase. Please try again."

    The Store is based in Australia, the PayPal account is a US one and the currency is in Euro. The products are downloadable.
    Will any of this cause the SandBox mode to throw a fit?

    I know the Live version works fine when the Live API credentials are saved, but for some unknown reason, the SandBox just doesn't seem to want to.

    I've deleted, re-installed MarketPress, deactivated other plugins etc but still no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you for the help. That fix worked a treat.

    Any idea on an expected release date of an updated plugin to fix this issue?
