Never use your real PayPal Account's API Access info with AppID: APP-80W284485P519543T for either testing purpose (Test mode) or going Live. AppID: APP-80W284485P519543T is only for testing (Test mode) and can only be use with API Access info obtained from PayPal Sandbox accounts. Always use PayPal Sandbox accounts for testing as using real PayPal account in “Test mode” will not work.
Create your live Classic API credentials from the PayPal.com site as follows:
You must have a PayPal Business account to make calls to the live PayPal servers. Log in to your Business account on the following page: https://www.paypal.com.
Click the profile (person) icon in the top right and select Profile and Settings from the drop-down menu.
Then navigate to My Selling Tools > API Access and click Update.
Note If you do not see the profile (person) icon in the top right, navigate to the API Access page by clicking My Account > Profile > My Selling Tools > API Access.
