putting woocommerce in sandbox mode


is it possible to put woocommerce in sandbox mode? I have a client whose site has woocommerce with paypal integration. Would paypal need to be put in sandbox mode? We want to test transactions without it actually charging but going through the entire payment process.

    Hi cornelius_butler

    Hope you are doing good today.

    There is possibility to switch woocommerce in to sandbox mode.

    Depending on which payment option you use (PayPal or PayPal Checkout) you can go to:

    WooCommerce -> Settings -> Payments tab

    and from there click on Manage button:

    Inside there you can simply switch mode in Environment section:

    1. for PayPal

    1. for PayPal Checkout

    Hope this help :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
