PayPal site is down

Posted on Tuesday, June 19th 2007 1:30 pm by menj in Payment Gateway

I went to PayPal just now, thinking of initiating a “funds transfer” withdrawal to my VMI card. Instead, I was greeted with this message:

Sigh, they could have warned us earlier. Now I have to wait until everything goes back up again.

      Is Paypal really a bad thing to be using?? How legitimate are these sites that are against Paypal. What has been your experience with Paypal??

      I have found their customer service to be excellent, they have helped me get my money back when it was fraudently taken and there are many other things that they have helped me with.

      Have you had bad experiences with Paypal? Or do you know anything about these sites downing Paypal??

      Plz help! I am worried about using them now!

      paypal sucks! Why did they suspended PTC sites, I lost lots of dollars that I invested to these sites when it closed down because paypal suspended their account and never refunded the money. They sholuld have atleast refunded the money. Hundreds of people lost money because of that lame move of paypal. They are robbers.

      I noticed the http://www.mastermindsupplements site was down and now it’s up again. They are having technical difficulties apparently. Their payment gateway is Authorize.net and Paypal, so I’m not worried about my information, but I want to get their product, where can I buy their product? I really like their product.

      For instance email1.paypal.com is stealing peoples bank details by sending out fake emails claiming the account has reached its limit. How can you get loads of people to hack these sites to death? It would be nice to turn the tables on these scammers.

      I’ve tried every method of getting to paypals mainsite as I know today 1/2/11. http, https. Search engines, ect. I cannot get onto the main site at all. I’ve tried all computers in my house. I can tell it is trying to reach the site, it constantly says loading, but it just times out and says ‘Problem loading page’.

      Anybody else having this trouble, if not, any tips on what might be going on, or how to resolve this? Thanks.

      Okay… well I just sold something on ebay. And the buyer sent me the payment via PayPal. But paypal says that they put the payment temporarily on hold. And I read that the funds will be sent to my balance if I get a positive feedback or if I print a shipping label using PayPal. So I printed the shipping label and am going to send the item tomorrow. But how long will it take for the payment to be released from hold after I printed the shipping label? Anyone with personal experience with this?

      I sold an item on ebay and the buyer paid with paypal right away, but I don’t see anything on paypal about it. I’m new to ebay and paypal. Does it take awhile for it to show up on my paypal account? If not, what’s wrong? Thanks!

      Here is the question, please don’t read more into it than I am asking, kindly.

      If I pay a large payment via paypal(couple thousand), then how long does it take for the receiver to access it. Does Paypal have a definite end time that it WILL be there/available/accessible?

      Sincere input is appreciated. Thanks!

      I don’t plan on buying using the account, and I don’t havea credit card. If I make an account, will PayPal only charge me 2.9% and $0.30 when I receive money, or will it withdraw that from my bank account even if I do not receive anything into the account?

      Also, once I get money into it, how do I transfer PayPal money into my bank account?

      I produce Erotic Art music video compilations. I already have WordPress, Blogspot and Tumblr. I also have embedded the links for my PayPal in each of them. The problem with a lot of sites is that what I do is I lift video from adult sites, lay down a soundtrack in my editing program then lay bits of video along with the music. Because the video is “lifted” I can’t claim a copyright on them, and I cannot charge for them. I can however charge people for the service of inserting their own home video in each of my pieces. Kind of like, interactive porn. They can actually be in a music video. The problem is a lot of sites won’t carry me because I’m not using my own material. Any way around that ? How can I make my own web site? (I already know about HTML and CSS codes)

      Oh, yeah… and I want it to be free, or very, VERY inexpensive…

      So I received the tracking number so I can track my package but I don’t know how to use it. Someone told me to click on ‘Describe’ on the purchase & then scroll down to something that’ll say something like ‘Edit Tracking’ but there isn’t. So how do I use it?

      I havea site where I’m using a simple buy now checkout using paypal, but now I’m in need to allow only a certain amount of these items to be available.
      Say I’m selling 20 tickets, each time someone purchases an item, this obviously goes down to 19.

      How can I do this? Is there any way I can do this using paypal itslef?

      Regards,
      Joe.
