PayPal Sandbox Integration

posts: 21 United States

Hi All!

I've managed to setup a PayPal button, and through the settings I've made it so it should be redirecting to a PayPal SandBox environment (by selecting the sandbox environment and entering the ID, password, and signature of the sandbox merchant). However, when I go to test the payment, it opens a window that is a production PayPal environment, meaning I cannot log in with my sandbox buyer account. Are there any additional features I need to consider?

I simply noted that on the sandbox tutorials I've watches, the web address in the windows they are directed to include a sandbox.paypal.com web address while the PayPal button on Tiki just takes me to a paypal.com address. Is there a different plugin other than the PayPal plugin that I should be using once I have the payment settings setup?

Thanks,
Sam

I realized that I need to use the Payment Plugin: https://doc.tiki.org/PluginPayment

or the Member Payment Plugin!

I hope this helps others.
