checkout in the sandbox with pay by paypal is not working
When I try to test my code by paying for a listing and checking out in the sandbox, it takes me to the login to ebay page instead of the login to paypal page. I am already logged in to ebay. After logging in again, I see the "review your order page", click Continue and it once again takes me to the login to ebay page, and back again to the review page in an endless loop (not endless, after 5 or so times I give up). Anyone else having this problem? I have cookies accepted in the browser, so that is not the problem.
I see that this is the same problem referred to recently with the subject line: Recurring Logouts from Sandbox Accounts (Sandbox DE) except now it's happehing in Sandbox US. I did check System Announcements before reporting this. Since it seems to be a known problem WHY IS IT NOT REPORTED THERE?
Same issue here. Testing on a new release of our system is now at a standstill and I am unable to offer support for existing deployments as I am unable to reproduce their issues in the sandbox environment.
We have sandbox issues from time to time. And in general you will be asked to sign in constantly in sandbox. That is because we have to piece together sandbox little by little. It is annoying but just the way it works as of now. With that said there are no issues or bugs as of now. Checkout is working for the US site.
That's the way I solved it...I used the US-Site (.com) First of all copy your sandbox password to clipboard. You'll need it a million times :-) 1. empty your browser-cache (I decided to use a browser I don't use very often, so I don't loose my settings in my standard-browser) 2. open the link of your test-ebay-item in incognito window. Cut everything after the item-number i.e.
http://cgi.sandbox.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=777777777777 3. click on buy now 4. Login, stay signed in = OFF (uncheck the box) 5. Click on the blue button in the upper right "Continue Payment" ---------------- I never reached this step (or status) when loggin in with cookies...let's go on... 6. you are asked to log in again, proceed with trying it...it will fail, over and over again 7. copy the current URL to clipboard 8. Switch to normal (Cookie activated) tab or browser and paste in the URL 9. Login, finish the Checkout by clicking the blue button in the upper right "Continue Payment" to proceed to PayPal 10. Login with you Sandbox-Account 11. Pay with PayPal In your BUYER-sandbox account you should now see the purchased item(s). By clicking on "view payment transaction" you are forwarded to PayPal sandbox. On the very bottom of the details-page you have a little link. It says something like "accept sandbox payment". I hope it helps someone... Greetings from germany. Jasiek
