Payment.Execute "TRANSACTION_REFUSED" - Sandbox tests successful but LIVE

Posted on



we implemented the PP Buttons to our webshop and tested everything in sandbox mode successfully. Now in live mode we get a "TRANSACTION_REFUSED" response on executing the payment.


We use the paypal-rest-sdk on a node backend server for our webhook endpoint. "PAYMENTS.PAYMENT.CREATED" gets called which triggers the execute request back to paypal (which fails).


Also we are missing logs from that calls in API Calls section on the developer dashboard.


Any ideas?
