process, we should be able to log into our sandbox account.
Processs - 2: Create Test Accounts
After logged in, in the sandbox "Home" page we have a section called "Test Accounts".

section, click on "create a preconfigured account" link.

Processs - 3: Implementation at the Application level
After all the above set up, now the time is for Application level implementation.
Step-1: Add a web reference to the project.Enter the web service URL as
"" and add the service. A new
web refernce named as "com.paypal.sandbox.www" will be found inside the
WebReference folder.
Step - 2: Add a appsetting key in the web.config file in order to switch between
developmnet environment and production environment.
<add key="PaypalEnvironment" value="Development" />
Step - 3: Write code for the Pay button (btnPayment) click event.
Add namespace:using;
Class level variable declaration:-

private string _PaypalUrl;

private UserIdPasswordType _credential;
Here we will collect the following information from the customer which is to be used in
the DoDirectPayment operation:
Amount of the transaction, Credit card type, Credit card number, Credit card expiration
date, Credit card CVV value, Cardholder first and last name, Cardholder billing address.

The exection of
DoDirectPayment API operation results a response type of
DoDirectPaymentResponseType, which will contain the info like Ack code (Success,
SuccessWithWarning, or Failure), Amount of the transaction, PayPal transaction ID,
Error codes and messages etc.
we can also use DoDirectPaymentResponseType further to obtain various data about
the transaction made like PaymentStatus,paymenterrors,TransactionID etc
The information collected here is hardcoded, we can replace it with the value of the
corresponding text fields present in the Payment.aspx page. For the credit card info, we
are using the details generated for the buyer account .Below is the code for the button
click event.
