  • PayPal Sandbox testing for checkout

    PayPal allows setting up a test account called sandbox. The sandbox is a virtual account that process just like the live account. The api points to WWW.SANDBOX.PAYPAL.COM instead of WWW.PAYPAL.COM. Users with valid test credit card information is setup so the entire checkout process can be validated and tested.

    However, 3dcart does not offer the option to changed the calling URL to PayPal for test purpose. It should be an option in the Payment Method -online options. According to PayPal technical support, other shopping cart systems have a toggle to perform this action.

    This is just one more item to add to 3dcarts enhancements associated with setting up a test site (sandbox) of which others have asked for.
