How long does it normally take for payments to show in activity?
Made a set of payments around 24 hours ago and still not showing.
Payments are made using a sandbox app with API credentials. Balance is updating correctly in both, and from the notification (email) the invoices can be viewed once logged in, but the payments do not show in the activity.
I have created a new seller and buyer account just to double check but still no activity after ~30minutes today.
Yes definitely, I've double checked the account the app API credentials are linked to, and the notifications in the developer dashboard. Then logged in with as the buyer and the seller in sandbox.paypal.com and still no transactions.
Any other data worth sharing for further investigation?
I have checked again and the problem seems to have been partially resolved - new payments are now showing (almost instantly), but the previously made ones have not appeared - are they lost forever?
I'm having the same issue. No transactions are being updated for buyer and seller after I pay. I've been working on this for hours and I'm stumped. Can you please share what you did to get this resolved? Thanks
Yesterday I implemented Paypal payment through Contact Form 7 in WP, all the transaction it's ok, but I have the same Issue the transaction is not reflected in any of the accounts facilitator and buyer.
If the buyer is getting 'Pending' on the transaction or stating that the seller 'hasn't accepted it yet' in their PayPal account and that same transaction is not showing in the Sellers (business) Pay Pal account try the following.
You may need to *activate* the sandbox business PayPal email account at:
And then go to notifications page - email and activate the email account;
Did you all get this to work? I'm making transactions with Laravel (PHP) and beein redirected to success page as well as getting success information in Request, but no transactions are shown. Maybe a bad configuration?
DId any one figure out the problem here?
i am also facing the same issue, no payment activities are reflecting either in buyer account or in Merchant account, though URL redirection is happening correctly for successful payment.
My Problem was: You have to confirm payment. I didn't get, that you only request Paypal to confirm user. Than you get back to your backend and have to do the transaction manually. Normaly you get back to shop after paypal, where you find a "Pay Now" Button to start transaction. That was what I didn't get before.
