Server unavailable error on calling Payment.Create in PayPal sdk

I downloaded the Paypal SDK for C# and am trying to create a basic payment in my asp.net mvc app. I'm running the exact code mentioned in the paypal dev site, https://developer.paypal.com/webapps/developer/docs/api/#create-a-payment but am getting an error (stack trace below). I'm able to get an access token so I'm assuming the app is able to communicate with the endpoint, but not sure why it complains in the Payment.create method. This is the first time I'm using asp.net mvc so am a little confused about what I could be doing wrong and would really appreciate any help :)

My Web.config file has this section:

  <paypal>
    <settings>
      <add name="endpoint" value="https://api.sandbox.paypal.com" />
      <add name="connectionTimeout" value="360000" />
      <add name="requestRetries" value="1" />
      <add name="ClientID" value="xyz" />
      <add name="ClientSecret" value="abc" />
    </settings>
  </paypal>

I worked a lot with PayPal and I found out hard way what the best way is using just their “REST” api (note the “”). I cannot post solution I made due to “not divulgation” agreement, but Trust me, just finish move SDK to trash and start with their POST api and “back POST” apis. It’s way simpler.
