    1 go to developer.paypal.com
    2 register developer acct
    3 register test accts (example one business and one for the buyer)
    4 add any (free;-) money to buyer's acct
    4 follow the set-up steps for the payment type you wish to use - Express or IPN
    - if you go for Express - go to Profile -> API Access -> Request API Credentials and use them in Zen Cart in which you have to select "sandbox" for PP Express checkout

    phew, did it a while ago and works
    tried the IPN but sadly ...
    too late... gotta go to bed
    hope this helps...

    cheers

    Right ive got a sandbox account as a buyer and a seller. When i enable sandbox mode from my zen cart admin i get this error message:

    We are sorry for the inconvenience. The PayPal account in this store is presently misconfigured to use mixed sandbox and live settings. We are unable to complete your transaction. Please notify the store owner so they can correct this problem. (10002)

    What am i doing wrong? Also do i log in with the e-mail address i typed in or the one with extra numbers e.t.c.

    e.g.******_1190048612_biz##########################

    Thanks
    Jamie

    hi....not sure if this is any help...what I do is actually set the price of an item to say 50 cents and prefer to go through a 'live' process to ensure everything is operating properly.....dont forget to adjust your price back though :)

    Cheers,
    Neil

    Have you a friend or a potential customer who could do a test for you? If you refund their purchase, it's no cost to either of you in the end.
    Even after doing a sandbox test, one should never just assume things are right without doing a test transaction "live".

    Jamie,

    I have used PayPal Sandbox successfully to test my Zencart store. Make sure in the PayPal IPN Payment Module you setup the Business ID EMail as you have it in your bussness Sanbox. ALso in the "Mode for PayPal web services" you use the url "www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr".

    Hope this helps..

    Ken
