The sandbox seems to be down site from 8th April 2014. We tried to registering.but we not get the activation link even if we clicked and send activation link number of times. Further, with the existing ebay token if try use the API s to use the trading APIs to GetCategories() to getting the error message as : ** VALIDATION OF THE AUTHENTICATION TOKEN IN API REQUEST FAILED** Please give 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 :
