    How to test Paypal payment form

    Is there a way to test a PayPal form?  I'm trying to set up installment payments and need to test it before going live.

    Yes, there is a way to test a PayPal form. The PayPal Sandbox is an environment where you can test a PayPal integrated form and make dummy payments. The PayPal Sandbox is an almost identical copy of the live PayPal payment system.

    To enable the Sandbox mode, just follow the instructions below:

    1. Right click the Paypal field

    2. Select the Edit Properties option

    3. Then Enable Sandbox Mode

    Do keep in mind that you will have to sign up first for a Paypal Sandbox account by following this link: https://www.sandbox.paypal.com/ 

    Then use that email address to make the Paypal payments. The following guide should help you: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/lifecycle/sb_about-accounts/
