    Not the same as the mythical Google sandbox.

    The paypal sandbox is real, and it is for programmers to test payment software, before running real transactions.

    PayPal Sandbox is a Test Account for Testing only.

    Sandbox IS a real technical term that refers to some sort of test area or safe area.

    As I recall, for paypal, it is SEPARATE, meaning you have to apply for the sandbox area. So NO, actually, NO paypal account has a sandbox. They are assigned to people, not accounts. Think of the paypal account as a duplicate server that isn't really hooked up to credit cards. And its ONLY value is to TEST!

    So the sandbox can't be use to test PayPal buttons on our site? If not, what is the way to test new payment buttons installed on site. Seems like PayPal would have an easy method set-up for this.
