Test Mode

This option, if selected, puts Paid Member Subscriptions in Test Mode, meaning that you can run test payments with dummy accounts. All requests will be sent to the sandbox domain (for PayPal) and you can use buyer Sandbox Accounts to complete the payment.
We recommend to always test payments before going live with your website.

According to PayPal’s Announcement, Instant Payment Notification (IPN) has been updated to https for added security. Because IPN is used for all PayPal payments, you will need to ensure that HTTPS is used when posting the message back to PayPal for verification. HTTP postbacks will no longer be supported.Action by you: An SSL certificate is required by 19 January 2016 for Sandbox testing and by 30 September 2016 for all PayPal transactions.
