      Please go to Event Plus Settings -> General -> Ticketing Settings -> Enable Admin Confirmation email – this should be checked. Also confirm that other mails are working on your site. If still it does not work then please raise at [email protected] with site details so that we can help you with this.

      To enable sandbox go to General settings and Enable Paypal Sandbox. Make sure you enter paypal sandbox id there. Hope this helps.
