testuserkoushikengineer:Since 8th April Sandbox is Down
The Sandbox seems to be down since 8th April 2014. I tried registering but still have not got the activation link,even if I clicked and send activation link'n' number of times. Further ,with the existing eBay token,if I try use the API's to use the Trading API's to GetCategories(),I am getting the error message as: "**VALIDATION OF THE AUTHENTICATION TOKEN IN API REQUEST FAILED**" Please give me the appropriate feedback.

Hi I am not sure if I understand the issue correctly with sandbox. What exactly are you trying to do ? Are you trying to create a new user or generate token or are you trying to create a developer account and expecting the activation link which did not come through ? The GetCategories api error is throwing the token error. Either the token is expired or may be you are using sandbox/production token to production/sandbox endpoint resp. If the token is expired, you need to renew the token by following these steps :
