Developing for PayPal Payment Processing

When developing an application that uses PayPal for payment processing, here are a few things that you might like to know about their test (or sandbox) environment that isn’t necessarily the same in their live environment.

  • Don’t try and approve any amount over $1,000.00; you can, but it’ll give you a bogus reply.
  • Only use 123 for the credit card’s CCV
  • Only use 4 digit expiration dates (mmyy) – this is true for live as well

Hope it helps!

(Hat tip to Mike Dopp for pointing these out!)
