Pro tip: The easiest way to do this is to add append “-sandbox” to your normal email address. If your email is john@yourdomain.com, create a sandbox account as john-sandbox@yourdomain.com. Make sure to replace with your own domain.

When finished, scroll down to the bottom and “Create account”.

Step 4

Finally, go to Orders page in the WooCommerce backend and see the order.

Step 5

Navigate go back to Amazon Pay in your WooCommerce backend. Update use sandbox to “no” to start accepting live transactions on your store.

Amazon Pay does not allow the same account to be used to make a payment and accept a payment on your store. I would recommend asking a friend or co-worker to do a live transaction on your website using their Amazon account.
