PayPal Experiencing Technical Issues Today
By: Ina Steiner
In case no one has reported this to you, Paypal is really really slow today. Payments are showing up in Ebay but not in Paypal.
When the payment does show up in Paypal, you cannot view the payment. It sends you to a "you landed here in error" type screen.
Note from the editor: PayPal is having issues: "Payments via API and www.paypal.com are intermittently unavailable for some customers. Some merchants may also see an increased number of API declines with error message 10764."
There are two places to check for status updates.
1) PayPal Live Site Status
2) PayPal Twitter account(@AskPayPal)
Update 3/4/11 at 4:45 pm EST: A PayPal spokesperson has provided the following statement:
"PayPal.com is currently experiencing some technical issues. The issues are intermittent, but are preventing some customers from accessing their account or completing a payment. We're working quickly to fix the problem and will provide more information as soon as possible."
