PayPal (testing not working)

I want to test PayPal (Express). It's a live store so using some hacks I can manage to edit/test on a live site using another gateway too for cc payments.
However, when I submit the checkout form it posts to the PayPal site, not the test sandbox. I am signed in into the sandbox environment in the same browser. How is this supposed to work? (I've read the current docs).

    Hello Rolf. If your store is configured in the FoxyCart admin to use a live payment gateway, then it will hit the the live PayPal servers. If you're setup to hit a test gateway, it will hit the sandbox. We always recommend setting up a separate store for testing, especially because they are free for development. It will help you in the future as well if you want to do upgrades or test new features.
