Sandbox testing not working

Hi. Can somebody tell me where I'm going wrong here? I've created a developer account and within that account there is a facilitator and buyer account. I've got a form using this structure:


<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_ext-enter">
<form action="" method="post">
   <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
   <input type="hidden" name="business" value="email">
   <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Item Name">
   <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
   <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="0.00">
   <input type="image" src="" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">


I've swapped the email for my facilitator email address. When I click the PayPal button, it takes me to paypal and asks me to log in but will not accept the buyer email address. This is not a password issue. I can log into both the facilitator and buyer accounts seperately. I've tried changing the form action to include 'sandbox.' before 'paypal'm but this does not work. In addition to this, when i log into my developer account I'm getting calls to verify my email address, even though I already have. When I click the link (it says either verify your email or click 'here') it takes me to the non-developer paypal hub. There are no cards or anything associated with this account.

Pretty confused - I have made transactions with these accounts previously but for some reason the current environment setup is not allowing it.

Any ideas?
