The subject is in the title, it seems that using Paypal Sandbox it is not possible to parameter the PDT for immediate transfert.
Please could you confirm ?

Thank you but after many investigations in forums I still have difficulties to implement the French Paypal Sandbox and still waiting the French Paypal contact (may be tomorrow 26th).
I progress a little bit and I finally found in Paypal Sandbox how to parameter the famous PDT and now I go automatically to the right “Thank you” page to download the file at the end of the Paypal payment.
But I still have problems with the different e-mails to confirm the transaction and to give to the vendor the Buyers details.
For example the buyer receive an e-mail saying that he will receive the product as soon as his payment will be verified.
I didn’t find anything for the vendor in the Estore pages, etc….
In addition I still receive in my main e-mail the “Warning” message saying :
“This is a notification email from the eStore plugin letting you know that a payment verification failed.
Please fully read this email as it will explain everything you need to know to address any issue(s) that maybe occuring (if there are any)!
The post payment verification for a payment notification failed. This could happen for one of the following reasons:
1. The fund for the payment have not cleared in PayPal yet (no need to do anything as the digital product will be delivered once the fund clears).
2. Someone maybe trying to scam a purchase! (no worries… WP eStore got your back
3. You have made a mistake somewhere (please see the failure reason section below to find out more details about this).
The following section has more details on why this failure occurred.
===== Exact Reason for This Failure =====
The transaction failed for the following reason…
Funds have not been cleared yet. Product(s) will be delivered when the funds clear!”
CONCLUSION: For the time being I still have to check all the parameters on Estore and on Paypal before saying it works or not using Paypal Sandbox.December 26, 2012 at 9:54 am #52612
I checked all the Estore parameters, it seems to be fine.
I went to Paypal Sandbox test e-mails and I see that all the transactions made are still in “Waiting for payment verification. Don’t make any shipment”.
Then no link is generated for the download transfer and the transaction doesn’t go to the normal end ([wp_eStore_transaction_result:end] not resolved), a red message saying “Thank you for your purchase. Your products ordered will be sent when your payment will be verified” or in French “Merci pour votre achat. Les produits commandés seront envoyés une fois que votre paiement aura été vérifié”.
I don’t see in the plugin any possibility to bypass the payment verification neither in Paypal Sandbox.
Is there any possibility I haven’t see ?December 26, 2012 at 11:26 pm #52613adminKeymaster
That means your sandbox PayPal profile is still not correctly setup. It is still holing the payment for manual verification. eStore will never give out links until PayPal clears the payment. Go through this checklist which should help you:
You basically have to keep fixing your PayPal sandbox account to where it is setup correctly and the payments are cleared automatically. Until you can get to that state nothing else will work. I know that setting up PayPal sandbox account fully can be a bit overwhelming. This is why I suggested you do a live transaction for a test product priced at $1 or something.December 27, 2012 at 2:13 am #52614
You are right, when I went to the transaction detail I see that the buyer has to approve or not the payment. It is not automatic.
I tried to see how to give an automatic authorization, like prepayment acceptance without success. Then it cannot work for sure.
I cannot join the Paypal client service, I left a message since Sunday evening, no reply for the time being.
You say “This is why I suggested you do a live transaction for a test product priced at $1 or something” but I would like to use the Paypal Sandbox option to simulate everything if possible. I will let you know how I go.January 13, 2013 at 4:12 pm #52615
As I promised you this is some information about the test on Paypal Sandbox.
Finally the French Paypal technical support replied to my question “How to parameter Sandbox to accept direct payments”.
In fact for the vendor the parameter “Payment review” should be put as disable and it solves the problem.
Now everything works fine, no payment procedure interruption.
