Testing Paypal on development machine

Post by dandersonMLT » Wed Oct 02, 2019 6:34 pm

I am working on setting up paypal for our site.
After working with paypal and setting up a sandbox test account, everything is now configured on my development machine for testing.

Using the paypal express button on the basket page works as expected.

However, when I do normal checkout (through opc.aspx) and choose paypal as the payment method, I cannot process it because I am using a development license on my development machine and paypal receives the address as "DEMO DEMO..."

Is there anyway to test this in a development environment? I am using test paypal acocunts, but since AbleCommerce is on a Development license, the real address is not being passed to paypal.

I'd like to test this before setting up on the live site.

This is for AbleCommerce GoldR10 (build 8302)

Thank you in advance!

PayPal sandbox requires that you have a server that can be accessed for the IPN to work now. In other words, you can't test using localhost.

If you would like a development key, please request it through your order.

Thank you for choosing AbleCommerce!
