Why won't this payment form accept my password (which works on the PayPal site itself)?: <removed>
(this is a site I've created for a client)
it does start with "https://www.sandbox.paypal.com" -- and that's as far as I got. I don't know what you mean by 'production environment account.'
I just want to make it such that someone will be able to make payments using this link. I don't want a testing account, I want to connect to my client's actual PayPal account so people can pay him. I'm obviously in over my head here. I used coding that was generated by PayPal to place on the site, thinking that it would allow payments to be made. Where did I go wrong?
Hi again, thank you for trying to help me figure this out. The coding was found here:
which I got to from
account/seller tools/paypal buttons/smart buttons
again, my button is on this page:
This is what it shows when I attempt to make a payment using that button:
It tells me I do not have an account (I've entered my own email to make a test payment). It also seems to include 'sandbox' in the URL, which I thought was NOT where it's supposed to go. This is not me trying to test from 'behind the scenes,' it's just me pretending to be a customer and pay for something, as with what has happened with my client's customers.
Thank you - this is starting to make sense, but can I just clarify one thing?
you say "To resolve this issue, you'll need a "live" environment "client-id", so login to your developer account and create a "live" REST application -"
Would the 'developer account' be the business account of the owner of the website who wants to be able to receive payments? Or is 'developer account' some whole 'nother thing? I want to give him instructions to retrieve a client-id for me to put into the code on the page, but I don't want to confuse him if that's not where he needs to go to find it.
So I think what I want is for it NOT to take me to the sandbox. Right? How do I create a button that will take someone to their actual PayPal account so that they can pay?
