I am trying to simulate a payment with a sandbox account which contains a test credit card containing insufficient funds. I have followed the steps https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/overview/#create-sandbox-accounts to create a sandbox account however, this does not allow me to set a balance on the credit card specifically.
This method only allows the PayPal balance to be modified. How do I create a credit card in the sandbox with insufficient funds?
The following link describes how to enable negative testing on my account but I can't seem to find this setting anywhere - https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/lifecycle/sandbox/sb-error-conditions/#enable-negative-tes...
I followed exactly these instructions but the transactions keep on succeeding on the new checkout. I even tried to meddle with the buyer account to remove all fundings but the UI doesn't allow me to remove either account nor credit card (which was recommended in another thread). More over, when creating a new buyer test account, it forces you to have a bank account, a discover card or paypal card so there is no way to start off with an account without funding. PayPal is being so inconsistent and unsatisfactory in whatever they do.
Thanks for the steps provided. I have successfully turned on Negative Testing on my account.
