When testing paypal sandbox payments, it looks good on the paypal side, but in xenforo logs i get the message "Information: OK, no action" and no upgrade to the account is made.

Heres the full log:

Worth noting that this particular payment is in a pending status, so there's no action to take. It hasn't been completed yet

I was doing this with the sandboxed accounts, is that why it didn't complete? I guess as long as both sites were communicating with each other it's set up properly.
