Test purchases with PayPal

It can be helpful to run some test purchases to make sure everything is working how you want it with your Sunshine install. PayPal has a Sandbox which is an almost exact clone of the live site where you can make test accounts and run test purchases.

Step 1

Login to the PayPal Developer website and create an account.

Step 2

Create 2 test accounts: 1 Business account (representing you in the testing process), 1 Buyer account (representing your client in the testing process).

Step 3

In your WordPress admin, go to Sunshine > Settings > Payments. Enable Test Mode for PayPal and enter the email of the Business account you created in the previous step.

Step 4

Make a test purchase using the Buyer email address.
