Paypal sandbox mode doesn't post orders on success?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

When I do a test purchase with the PayPal in sandbox mode, the order doesn't get posted in 'Orders' section...is that on purpose or do I have a bug?

I too would like to know if this happens on purpose because its a test or because its an error. I just ran the same test and didnt see anything in the orders list.

I would find it much more reassuring if they'd put the fake orders in the orders section and even send fake email notifications.

I haven't heard from anybody yet on this.

Very Tru But here is something that may help you. I just used the PaypalAPI Module out and it works perfects (Sandbox Mode and Live Mode) It even posted the info to the orders page(Backoffice), The Customers Page, (Front Office) and I saw the email come through it works perfectly. If you require Instruction on what I did to get everything working perfectly let me know and I'l write a Step By Step Guide for you(Not Complicated I promise). Cheers

Thanks for the tips!...anything you can tell me would be appreciated. I'm in an awkward position in that I'm setting this up for somebody else and I can't control their paypal account. I guess you need the login and password to the paypal account to set up PayPal API?...all I have is the paypal email for the account.

Yes you need all of the information but here is the cool part. You can sign up for a Free Sandbox Account with them to test everything out. I'm writing you and anyone else who needs a tutorial (With Pictures and Commentations) on how to:

1. Receive Payment Successfully
2. Proper configuration so that the shopping cart empties out
3. Proper configuration so that the order is received(Back-end)
4. Proper configuration so that the customer get notification & it appears in their orders page(Front End)

Give me about 2 hours and I'll have it for you. If you need anything PM or leave a Message Here and I'll Return it right Away.

Cheers Bro

PS I also was able to get the UPS Module to work with this in conjunction if anyone is interested.

Hey Shadowfox,

I'm still working on it...it needs SSL and I'm trying to get that working on the site. On the upside, I got the Paypal API credentials from my client so if the sandbox test works for orders and email notifications, then I'm good to go.

Your instructions are excellent...clear and easy to follow. One question: I have to turn on 'Enable SSL' on the main preferences tab?

I hope the SSL doesn't screw up my theme...I worked hard on it...

SSL only "Secures" Webpages it doesnt touch anything with themes. You should be good to go.

Well, I mentioned the SSL messing up themes because at the bottom of the preferences tab, there is: 'My shop use a PrestaShop v1.1 theme (SSL will generate warnings in customer browser)'

...I copied the 'Prestashop' main theme and modified it...

so...every time I press the 'checkout' button, it empties out my cart?

Question...if you're going to use SSL, do you have to install Prestashop under the SSL?...it seems to me that links will be different...http versus https ? It seems that smarty and thickbox compile the http or https into the files during install?

I installed under a http...now I'm trying to work under a https and it keeps jumping in and out of secure mode?

Do I have to reinstall Prestashop again? :(

I got through all my SSL issues now...a couple of tweaks in INIT.PHP to fix.

i can get through the whole process now and log into paypal sandbox with fake buyers account but when I press the 'Pay Now' button, it just churns endlessly...I've let it go for like 20 minutes.

Any thoughts?...anybody?

It's working!!111!11!!1eleventy!!!!

Thanks for the help Shadowfox :)

I got a question...the plain Paypal module, once you went to Paypal it just left you there so you could print a receipt and stuff and the PaypalAPI one just kicks you back to your store...is there any way to make it stay in paypal so they can print a receipt and just press that 'Return to Store' button in Paypal to return to the store?...just wondering if it's possible.

Anyway, orders now show in the orders...mails get dispatched...life is getting better :)
