Account settings for testing credit transactions

You can accept credit cards and Easy Payments with PayPal Credit in test transactions.

Accept credit cards in test transactions

To use a credit card as a payment method in your test transactions, you must configure a test Business account as a Website Payments Pro account:

  1. Create a sandbox Business account or use an existing account.
  2. Return to the Sandbox > Accounts page and click the expand icon next to the email address of your newly created Business account; click on View/Edit Account to open the Account Details dialog.
  3. On the Profile tab of the Business account, click the Account type: Upgrade to Pro link.
  4. Click the Enable which appears in the window.

Tip: After you enable Website Payments Pro for a test Business account, the setting is permanent and you cannot undo the configuration for that account. We recommend you create multiple sandbox business accounts with various settings in order to test all the variations you might need to handle with your application.
