What SSN should I use for a Sandbox test account?

You need a Social Security Number (SSN) to create a PayPal Payments Pro account. In the Sandbox, use "111" for the first three digits, followed by the two other number sets (a two-digit number and a four-digit number).

You can use any set of numbers for the rest of the SSN, excluding the number 111-11-1111.
