OK so I havelogged in to PayPal Developer and have three accounts setup with different email and passwords. I have my website setup to access the sandbox.paypal site to test payment processing. I can create an order on my dev website, transfer to sandbox paypal, make a payment and then get the paypal success screen with the return to merchant button. What I would like is to automatically return to my website on successful payment.
I've read I can do this in my 'normal' paypal account in my profile settings, but this requires a return URL. I canot do this currently as the dev site is not completed and our current live website relies on PayPal for legitimate payments and orders.
How can I setup the sandbox paypal to auto return to my dev site?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your reply. I'm still confused. I can login to:
www.paypal.com and see the my account settings etc including the Auto return and URL box. This is currently being used by the live website and processing transactions.
When I try and login to www.sandbox.paypal.com using exactly the same merchant details as the live PayPal it does not allow me to log in.
Do i need to setup a sandbox account from the live PayPal?
Same problem with me.
I updated the value of "Return url" in my sandbox yesterday, but nothing happens.
I need this to complete the payment flow.
