Seller Reports Delayed and Missing Funds with PayPal Sweeps
I am in Oz (Australia) - one of my transfers from PayPal on the 16 April 2012 has not shown up in my bank account. Payments withdrawn before and after have appeared.
I rang PayPal and was informed that "a few other people have reported this problem on the 16th." I was told to wait till Fri. PM to re contact PayPal as it was my bank's responsability and nothing to do with PayPal. As EFT non receipt is usually the senders responsability I am not sure where I stand.
PayPal has been particularly sketch recently - there was the "Risk" flag which threw me for a day, now disappeared and the auto sweep of my PayPal account did not occur for three consecutive days. I withdrew anyway, but did not receive the usual PayPal outraged email saying the automatic sweep was not able to be completed, which indicates the auto sweep was never going to happen.
Usually if I withdraw in the am one day, the money is in my account the next evening. Not since last Friday. Up to a day later than usual.
I think PayPal has some big issues and hopefully the upgrade this weekend will solve some issues? or make them worse. I remain hopeful.

UPDATE: Update on the "missing" Oz PayPal payments from the 16 April, 2012;
I telephoned my bank and they placed the responsability firmly on PayPal; I telephoned PayPal and was informed that a) the money was not lost b) there were a large number of people who had "missed" their payments and that they would forward my details to the area sorting this out and my name was added to the list!! c) they expected to have it sorted by today, Friday 20 April or early next week.
I suggested there had been a "software" malfunction because the auto sweep had not worked for the previous three days and that the time of the transaction on the 16 April was unusual - 3.40am, NOT the usual 6 to 7 am. I also pointed out I had not received any email from PayPal advising me the sweep had not occurred despite my withdrawal during the period it SHOULD have occurred.
To add to the confusion, I received in my account at 12.20 pm the money swept from my payPal account at 7am yesterday - this is the earliest I have received money from PayPal EVER!!!!
Lets hope the upgrade tonight goes well.
