Attempts to validate ipn payloads against the  url https://ipnpb.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr are returning a 404 http code with the message "ROUTE_NOT_FOUND"
Is the validator service down for sandbox?

 

ex: curl --location --request POST 'https://ipnpb.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr' -d 'cmd=_notify-validate&mp_custom=test'

Hello,

We're aware of issues whilst attempting to validate sandbox IPN's against the endpoint "https://ipnpb.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" and our engineers are actively investigating the issue. I'll pin this thread to the top of this forum and let you know once that issue is resolved.

In the interim, can you attempt to validate against the endpoint "https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" and let me know if you experience any issues ?

If you do happen to experience an issue, could you please share the debug id for the attempt ?

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Thanks !
