I got the same error – are you all using the Paypal sandbox accounts?

If it was resolved – please let me know how to resolve it.

Hey All,

I was having trouble with this step also, but found out what i was doing wrong.

Are currently in test mode, and are your settings in the Payment gateway set to “Enabled” under “Payment Test Mode”?

If they are, you need to use the Sandbox API credentials. The Paypal sandbox feature is purely for testing only, and no transactions will actually be made. If you are running your site live, you use the API credentials in your PayPal account (be sure to check “Payment Test Mode” to disabled if that’s the case).

To get your API credentials for Sandbox, go to www.developer.paypal.com and log in. 

  1. On the left go to > Accounts (under sandbox)
  2. Create a new BUSINESS account (if you haven’t already)
  3. Click on drop down box and go to Profile
  4. Go across to “API Credentials” tab and use those in your Escrow Configuration
  5. For the PayPal Adaptive APPID, use the “Sandbox ID” code found in the App section (Use Live ID when you’re payment portal will go live)

Hope this clears it up for someone. It’s been a pain for me, but finally got past this step.

Now i am getting error “Invalid request parameter: email cannot be blank”, when trying to accept a bid (in test mode). Any guidance from here would be amazing!
