There are 3 ways to test delivery of your product through DPD:
1. Send yourself a free download
Once your product is configured in the DPD system you can visit its detail page and send yourself a free download. This simulates an activated purchase on the DPD system and emails out a download link to the email address you specify. The free download function operates exactly like a valid, activated purchase on the DPD back-end so this is the quickest and easiest way to test your product for delivery
To send yourself a free download:
- Log in to DPD
- Go to the Products list in the left menu
- Find your product in the list, and click the "View" button on the right to open the product details page
- Click the button with 3 dots on it near the top of the page and select Send Free Download from the menu that appears
- Enter the email address you want to authorize the free download for and submit
- Use the link provided on screen to test, or click the link in the email that was sent to test your product download.
2. Temporarily set your product price to $0
3. Make a test purchase.
Sandbox Accounts / PayPal Sandbox / Google Checkout Sandbox
DPD does not support sandbox accounts. We used to, but the vast majority of vendors did not understand how they work, had trouble understanding that they had to create all new sandbox vendor and buyer accounts, etc. and led to way more confusion (and service cancellations because people got frustrated and quit) than it was worth.
The sandboxes are developer tools and not something a vendor using DPD should have to deal with- that's our job! We've thoroughly tested our integration and worked with PayPal, Google Checkout, ClickBank, etc. to make sure everything is working in the background for you!
However, if you really must have the sandbox mode to test we can turn it on for you- please submit a support ticket.
