This is a class I use instead of the default PayPalPaymentsForm in django-paypal.

I wanted to use the Paypal sandbox on my development site and the real Paypal site on my production site. Currently, if you want to output the Paypal form with the sandbox you have to call the sandbox() method on the form, rather than the render() method.

Using this class instead of the default PayPalPaymentsForm, you can just set PAYPAL_DEBUG to True in the settings file and the form will take you through to the sandbox instead. Don't forget to set the sandbox merchant account's business email address as PAYPAL_RECEIVER_EMAIL too.

from paypal.standard.forms import PayPalPaymentsForm as BasePayPalPaymentsForm
from django.conf import settings


class PayPalPaymentsForm(BasePayPalPaymentsForm):
    """Better support for the sandbox.
    It will show the sandbox form upon rendering if PAYPAL_DEBUG is set to True."""

    def render(self):
        if settings.PAYPAL_DEBUG:
            return self.sandbox()
        return super(PayPalPaymentsForm, self).render()
