    1. Hi Bouheang,

      If you have logged in to your Paypal sandbox account (in the same browser in different tab), you will be redirected paypal payment. Otherwise, you will be redirected to paypal sandbox page and ask you to login to sandbox first.

      Hope this help.

      2. i guess there is no way to bypass the sandbox login page in test mode. if you want to go to the paypal payment page directly. i think you could open a real paypal account instead of using the sandbox account. but in that case, you are going to have a real payment in live mode.

  3. Hi, i am able to make a payment successfully with the sandbox buyer account. However, after the payment, i would like the buyer to be redirected to my website automatically. But currently he has to click on the “Go back..” link.

    Is there a way to bypass this?

    2. I just checked the sandbox seller account and i found the the Merchant Service is linked to the real paypal site. that’s y it does not work.

      You can get the buy now button using another path. Go to Products & Services and then click Get Paid under Frequently Used Tools. Then you can find the option Add payment buttons.
