url to post to developer testing accounts

Hi all,

 

I have built my own shopping cart using PHP and I use this URL on my buttons to go to pay-pals checkout page:

https://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=(pay-pal user login id goes here). This works just fine, but I am trying to figure out what to change this URL to so it will post to my sandbox account.

 

I've tried several different URL's. For example I've tried the following:

https://developer.paypal.com/xclick/business=d.mcgl_1262655042_biz at att.net

https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/xclick/business=d.mcgl_1262655042_biz at att.net

https://www.developer.paypal.com/xclick/business=d.mcgl_1262655042_biz at att.net

 

And none of them work. Does anyone know what I should be using? I've looked numerous times in the documentation and I get so fusturated because pay-pal seems so unorganized. Trying to find something so simple turns into a web surfing marathon.

 

PS I couldn't post the at symbol so I replaced it with "at"

Re: url to post to developer testing accounts

[ Edited ]

The Sandbox pathing or URL is:

 

Sandbox URL: https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr

 

 

Ensure that you first login to your Sandbox Developer Account before attempting to test any code.

 

 

The code format should be something similar to this:

 

https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_cart&add=1&business=youremail @ youremail.com

 

Note, for forum posting purposes, you have put spaces in the email address as the forum does not permit posting an email address in the normal fashion.

 

 

Regards,
