Opencart Paypal sandbox always send the pending status although complete

While testing Paypal with Opencart, Paypal sandbox always sends the pending status although completed. We were working with the Paypal sandbox business account and Opencart opensource and getting this problem.

We were working for the to make the instant delivery system. We got stuck for around 1 day as the PayPal complete status is also sending pending status. We checked it many times and installed many new installations but the result is the same. Always we get the pending status.

So, we have to test it live with real payment. We were successful to accomplish the given project.

Now, what was the real problem we found was, we were using the live Paypal email address instead of the business account or in-store email account created at the sandbox. 🙂

So, we create a business account and insert it into the Paypal payment address and it started to track the correct status.

We created the store on Opencart and just changed the Paypal email at Modules>> Payments >> Paypal Standard. We inserted the business PayPal email and it starts working.
