How to test membership with paypal sandbox


Can someone tell me the step by step instructions to test the memberships with Paypal Sandbox?

I tried testing, but got stuck on paypal sandbox website and never got redirected back to the website.

Is there some tutorial or case study I can read?

Thanks in advance.

    Hello chris,

    I hope you are well today.

    I'm afraid there's no tutorial or case study available for this.

    The basic steps are as follows though:

    * Login to
    * Go to Dashboard -> Accounts
    * Create a Business account to setup as your PayPal Email in M2P (usually something like
    * Create a Personal account to use for testing transactions (usually something like
    * Make sure you assign a password for both accounts
    * Access the Membership List page in an incognito window and do not use your admin account (create a new one).
    * Run a transaction using the buyer account as the customer.

    NOTE: If you are using PayPal Standard Gateway you will still use as the Merchant ID.

    Even if the transaction is successful, you will need to click a button on the PayPal site to be directed back to your site if you are using PayPal Single Gateway

    I hope this clarifies a bit. Let us know if you have any further questions. We'll be happy to help! :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
