Permission denied (403) error with Express Checkout

I am setting up Express Checkout, but these past 2 days I am receiving a Permission denied (403) error when I click the PayPal button. It is supposed to launch the pop-up window for logging in, however it auto-closes after a second, and it returns an error in the console saying:

 

Request to post https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/payments/payment failed with 403 error.

"name": "PERMISSION_DENIED",

"message": "No permission for the requested operation"

 

A few days into the build, this was working, but now it is always that error. I created a PayPal REST API app here:

 

https://developer.paypal.com/developer/applications/create

 

... and I am using the Client IDs from the sandbox and from the live tab. If I switch the setting "env" to "production", I get the same error.

 

To make sure this is not an error in my code, I run the test here:

 

https://developer.paypal.com/demo/checkout/#/pattern/client

 

... by replacing the "sandbox" and "production" values with my own. But it is still the same, when I click on the button, it always returns the "permission denied" error, like there is something wrong with the account's permissions.

 

I spent a couple of days looking through the account settings, trying to find if something was wrong, or disabled, or if some info is missing, but I can't find the cause there. I have run out of options.

 

Can you please help me?

Thank you!

Re: Permission denied (403) error with Express Checkout

Me too, the very same code works with my personal paypal account sandbox id but when I put the business account sandbox id I get the 403 error and json below (from https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/payments/payment):


{"name":"PERMISSION_DENIED","message":"No permission for the requested operation","information_link":"https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/payments/#errors","debug_id":"b51505b8436c7"}

 

Any clue?

Re: Permission denied (403) error with Express Checkout

Well, the same problem.

 

My own account (sandbox and production) works fine, but not a client one.

 

Application permissions is just the same as in my account, i tried regenerate credentials, removed and add new application, checked all logs, waited a hour to changes to take effect - all with no success. Error on creating payment (client side api) drops error but description is not informative

"name": "PERMISSION_DENIED",

"message": "No permission for the requested operation"

 

I sent message to support, hope they can suggest something.
