Hi guys,

I uploaded one of those freely available IPN paypal PHP scripts to my site.

I was wondering if anyone is interested to....... place a test payment for me...... (Joking)

No, seriously, how can I test if the first customer is not going to be disappointed?

Thanks

Run a purchase through the system with a credit card you have for like .50, you will get the money back and also be sure the process works.

For my development purposes I have two PayPal accounts.  I use one to test the other.  I do not use the sandbox, but according to the PayPal developer documentation you can do that for your testing purposes.  Required reading here:
