Sandbox broken, workaround for testing?

What is the best way to test our integration? The sandbox is completely broken:

- The site has lots of broken assets

- Buy it Now tries to log you into the production environment

- If you are already logged into a testuser account you get redirected to https://www.ebay.com/n/error?statuscode=500

- Add to cart links to a non-existent site (no DNS)

I don't even remember the sandbox ever working. Its status page hasn't been updated since 2018. It's still warning of the impending separation of PayPal and eBay.

I'm trying to test a non-UK seller selling to UK buyer for the new tax reference fields. This is the item: https://sandbox.ebay.com/itm/110538553412

All my previous work has been in listing and downloading category data so this is the first time I've personally had to modify our GetOrders integration. I know the other devs here use a production account for testing but the accounts get suspended so is there another workaround?

Im stuck on createReturnPolicy in sandbox, and i can't go on without. It's really frustrating.

After logging in as a developer using a test account in the eBay sandbox we see the following screen:


If we now do for example a search for “pen” we get the following. It looks like the sandbox link end-points are broken.



If we click on the cart, we get the following. We cannot populate the shopping cart. This indicates the API end-point is broken.


If we try to populate with APIs – get the similar result indicating the APIs in the test environment are broken
