Unable To Log In Using Sandbox Test Accounts

Recommended Posts

Hi Larry,

 

I really love reading your books and I learned a lot from them. Right now i'm having problems in logging using the test buyer accounts in the part Testing Accounts Paypal. I was able to create them in sandbox and then i register in the knowledge is power site then click the paypal button shown on the registration page. However when i tried to login using the test accounts it says Please check your email address and password and try again. I'm wonderin what went wrong, coz i followed all the steps. Thanks in advance!

Thank you very much for the nice words, Jan. I really appreciate it! Unfortunately it's hard (or impossible) for me to debug a PayPal problem. Have you tried contacting PayPal?

Im having the same problem as well. I was able to create a paypal account but ti doesnt seem to let me log in anyone. The code it gave me for my button was www.paypal.com and not sandbox.paypal.com even though I started the button making process on the test account for the seller.

Once you've created your test accounts, you need to type "sandbox.paypal.com" into your address bar to get to the sandbox login. Otherwise, you're trying to log in to your regular PayPal account with your sandbox credentials, which clearly won't work.
