    Test form submissions when PayPal is intergrated?

    Asked by MCVH on November 18, 2014 at 11:04 AM



    My form has PayPal intergration, so I don't receive form submissions unless a payment is also made. Because this is a new form, I want to test the experience and thankyou page and generally make sure everything is OK. Is there a way of doing a test???


    Thanks, Scott

    The PayPal Sandbox is an environment within which you can prototype and test PayPal integrated form. You can test your form and make dummy payments as well. The PayPal Sandbox is an almost identical copy of the live PayPal payment system.

    You can enable the Paypal sandbox by clicking on the gear icon of your paypal payment question and then clicking on the "Show Properties". Please check the screenshot below:

    You will have to signup for a PayPal Sandbox account by clicking on the following URL:  https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/

    Then use this email address to make the PayPal payments. The following guide should help you:


    If you end up using some submissions during your testing and would like your limits reset, we usually have no problem doing so.  We do check the submission to make sure they were tests though.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
