8. The PayPal Web Services API > 87. Set up the Sandbox

Set up the Sandbox

Create phony accounts and use phony money to test your API code, all without spending a dime.

Tip

Go to http://paypalhacks.com for downloadable code and API updates.

PayPal Developer Central includes an environment called the PayPal Sandbox, in which you can test your PayPal Web Services applications, as well as IPN and PDT features (discussed in Chapter 7). The Sandbox looks and behaves like the PayPal web site, with one important exception: no real money is transacted. You can create and access multiple test accounts in the Sandbox, which means that you can create both a business and a buyer account without the hassle of setting up real email, credit card, and bank accounts.
