When testing the card checkout features on sandbox its advisable to use test card numbers The sandbox pretty much accepts anything that passes the Luhn Algorithm test (See here).
You can generate card numbers using external sites like these:
Or you can generate them within PayPal using this guide below:
I'd also generally recommend not to re-use the same card number for a large amount of transactions
Rotate the card numbers you use for testing purposes to ensure a smooth experience

Usually paypal accepts, but sometimes paypal not accept this numbers.
Yep, these are for use on the sandbox environment and are completely safe to use, basically as long as the card number passes the Lunh Algorithm test we'll accept it on sandbox.

We have setup a WordPress website with WooCommerce using PayPal as payment gateway. When using Sandbox mode everything works, but when going live, the payment doesn’t go trough. There is an error message saying “Sorry, an error occurred while trying to retrieve your information from PayPal. Please try again.” We have tried to pay with a PayPal account and with credit card. We have now tried to use the default WordPress theme, disabled all plugins except WooCommerce and PayPal. Still the same problem. Two weeks ago we setup two other eCommerce shops with the same WordPress theme, WooCommerce and PayPal as gateway. Both works fine. The only difference between those and this one is the hosting. https://minecraftapkmod.info/ Thanks
