Why do I always get the following PayPal error page when I try to pay using
PayPal for Sandbox items?
This function is temporarily unavailable. Please try your payment
again later by returning to eBay and clicking the My eBay button.
After registering a Sandbox user with the eBay
Sandbox User Registration, you need to modify the registration and Shipping
Address and fill in a correct address, otherwise you will see the above error
message when trying to pay using PayPal.
When a user is directed to PayPal Sandbox, the sandbox buyer needs to have the
registration address and shipping address filled out correctly. If either
of the addresses are incorrect, you are likely to see this error. If
you used the eBay
Sandbox User Registration
to create the user, you need to update the
registration and shipping address because the tool uses dummy values to fill in
the address. For instance, if you create a user registered on US, the
address is as below for the Registered Address and Shipping Address:
city, state 95125
Since the above address is not real, when the user tries to pay using PayPal, it results in the error page.
You can update the addresses by signing in to Sandbox as the user, go to MyeBay
and under My Account, click on the Addresses link.
