I am trying to list an item with AutoPay in Sandbox, but my request is failing with the following error -

What am I doing wrong?

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

For the item to be listed correctly and for payments to be posted correctly, please make sure that the address that you supply in the PayPalEmailAddress field matches the paypal email address that you linked with your sandbox seller account.

How well did this answer your question?
