  • gravity1046 gravity10.46@ FE’20 (@gravity1046) reported

    @nicnak044 This seriously is a common problem. I’ve been waiting on updates on a plush that was supposed to be finished before Christmas. PayPal protection runs out March 3rd. They haven’t responded to any of my messages. :/ Another plush maker took my money and ran. Been over a year too.

  • wingedpower Wing Wong (@wingedpower) reported

    @daz3d @daz3d oh and fix your PAYPAL contact number. You have an old employee's personal number. WTF.

  • DanielMicay DanielMicay (@DanielMicay) reported

    I've had nothing but problems with financial services companies like Stripe, PayPal, Shopify, etc. for years. I don't understand how things can be this messed up. They shouldn't expect to continue existing as businesses when the bar for replacing them is so ridiculously low.

  • alexhammerstone Hammerstone (@alexhammerstone) reported

    Please take this post down until you have PayPal’d the 3750$ and shipped me my extra crispy 6 piece

  • Stranded_Tacos Stranded_Tacos (@Stranded_Tacos) reported

    @SNoodle_JuJu The problem is that I don’t have PayPal

  • KSeibertAu Krystian Seibert (@KSeibertAu) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    On the legal complications with Celeste Barber’s bushfire fundraiser - very disappointed that the PayPal Giving Fund Australia rushed the funds out. Would’ve been much easier to address the legal issues had they held onto them and sat down with RFS/Barber to work things out.

  • polyphonetic ✨🏳️‍🌈𝚔𝚒𝚛𝚍💜🏳️‍⚧️ (@polyphonetic) reported

    :/ i had issues with my bank (it hates international payments for some reason) and had been trying to give money to this kickstarter to get tshirt / some pins, i was talking to the person before and they said if it didn't go through we'd work it through paypal 1/

  • TeamCoffeeGuy Dan Goldsmith (@TeamCoffeeGuy) reported

    @AskPayPal my account has been hacked. I'm trying to get into my account to stop it but it's not working. Can someone please help

  • AquariaSummer Aquaria Summer (@AquariaSummer) reported

    @dylan_blake_x I'd be down for paypal. Since you are selling an actual item people have to realize you need shipping information.

  • KSeibertAu Krystian Seibert (@KSeibertAu) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @gemcarey @nzherald Yep - very unfortunate. Was saying this would happen more than a month ago. Back then there was a much easier option to fix it, when the donated funds were still sitting with PayPal. But they were transferred to the RFS donation fund, too quickly and before the issue was sorted.

  • distractal Erik Johnson (@distractal) reported

    @ChristerEricson @mike_acton Twitter, Steam, Paypal, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, afaik all have similar mechanisms, with similar remediation issues. The problem is not one company. The problem is the tech sector's fixation on automation and believing that tech can solve sociology and bad actors by itself.

  • SimonKopaczz Simon - Rest in Peace Etika. ✝ 🇵🇱 (@SimonKopaczz) reported

    @XboxSupport Hey, I can't download SW Battlefront from Games with Gold... keeps on telling me that I don't have any billing info (I do, paypal.) and if I try to change that it tells me to put US info (I'm from Europe). Even if I put anything false, it shows an error. plz help.

  • zcashvr Zcash Users #z2z 🦓🦓🦓 (@zcashvr) reported

    @binaryFate Oh, right. Let me fix that- Fungibility, from greatest to least Zcash #z2z Digital cash (PayPal, Apple Pay, etc) Monero Bitcoin

  • popartland POP ART LAND GALLERY (@popartland) reported

    @Square I have already removed Square as a payment option from my website. I have used both Stripe and PayPal for years without an issue. Gave you guys a chance. Never again. I will be contacting an attorney within 3 business days if I don't receive a satisfactory response from you.

  • SerenaSousa Serena 🌸 PAX EAST (@SerenaSousa) reported

    Theres a problem with PayPal right now and I'm going to try to fix it sorry guys :(

  • RosiePosiePoni Rosie Posie (@RosiePosiePoni) reported from Cherry Hill, Virginia

    I've had this issue with 2 brony artists who are both well known for their work It's because of this, I'm tempted to either only give a down payment & request at least WIPS & communication for delays &/or a strict 5 month deadline before PayPal is involved. I'm done being nice.

  • MikeLoweO Mike Nice (@MikeLoweO) reported

    @BabyBearHS @AskPayPal Omg hopefully they help you ASAP! I can only relate a little bc I literally just went 7 days waiting to get back into my Twitch account and couldn't stream via authentication issues/new phone etc etc. Hope they get back to you today soon!

  • richard_of_yore ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 𝔬𝔣 𝔜𝔬𝔯𝔢 (@richard_of_yore) reported

    @AkiraSakura2 @melissaannmeade @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal My problems started last Thursday, eBay help desk said one or two users had reported a similar problem and that he would let tech support know. Seemingly tech support don't know the answer. Presumably some software, somewhere, has been recently updated.

  • colorfulnoname_ ❌фукасе сосет (@colorfulnoname_) reported

    also bother my parents with making paypal again aaaksjskdksm why are there so many problems with itttttt

  • NickCox01 Nicky/ニッキー (@NickCox01) reported

    @deanSplatoon wish I could, but I would need to fix my PayPal cause it needs a non-expired ID ;n;

  • AkiraSakura2 PJ Akira (@AkiraSakura2) reported

    @melissaannmeade @richard_of_yore @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal Exactly - this issue affects 60-70% users and Ebay still refuse to inform them publicly that there is a problem with Ebay system. they should announce that they are on top of it. Like any competent company would do so. they don’t bother to fix it in last two days as it’s weekend.

  • nearXfn Pyro Near (@nearXfn) reported

    Feeling generous today.. drop paypal emails down below and explain what you need $$ for 💰🤔

  • richard_of_yore ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 𝔬𝔣 𝔜𝔬𝔯𝔢 (@richard_of_yore) reported

    @melissaannmeade @AkiraSakura2 @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal It's a script in common usage. Had a problem with my ISP's email system and technical issues are beyond first level support but getting beyond them has proved beyond me.

  • richard_of_yore ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 𝔬𝔣 𝔜𝔬𝔯𝔢 (@richard_of_yore) reported

    @melissaannmeade @AkiraSakura2 @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal It's an issue which has caused me to contact eBay's help desk twice and PayPal's help desk once. Of course the problem is due to the other lot. p.s they used that old standby excuse - have you tried another browser :-(

  • winnietheshitz 𝕵 ➐ (@winnietheshitz) reported

    PayPal me money and I’ll listen to your problems for an hour ..

  • melissaannmeade Melissa Ann Meade (@melissaannmeade) reported

    @richard_of_yore @AkiraSakura2 @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal It's an issue that they won't admit to publicly despite being a publicly traded company. The company needs a CEO and up-to-date technology.

  • richard_of_yore ℜ𝔦𝔠𝔥𝔞𝔯𝔡 𝔬𝔣 𝔜𝔬𝔯𝔢 (@richard_of_yore) reported

    @AkiraSakura2 @melissaannmeade @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal There is a problem on eBay paying with PayPal, hangs after i/p of email add. and password. I have paid for items on another site using PayPal and no problem. :-(

  • nicnak044 Nicole🔜ANE2020🐾 (@nicnak044) reported

    Really don't like getting paypal involved when I'm working with an artist I've commissioned but..if you take my payment..haven't completed the work in *looks at calendar* 4 months, and you're STILL taking on more work, and ghosting me, that's an issue.

  • ChaseFaceShow ChaseFace (@ChaseFaceShow) reported

    @alexaka1 Yeah that’s totally fine, I’ve never had an issue with PayPal. Never had anyone reverse any donations or anything.

  • jamesjnicholls James Nicholls (@jamesjnicholls) reported

    @Aaron_25 @AskPlayStation To make it worse, my wife filed a dispute with @AskPayPal to register the purchase as unauthorised and they've denied it, claiming it was! So that's now @AskPayPal and @AskPlayStation being terrible today.

  • mr_ryder89 zach ryder (@mr_ryder89) reported

    @BluxtersMUT @YouTube No problem find how to get Dstreams once your done download the so player. You’ll send someone $22 through PayPal and boom done. Can have up to 4 devices.

  • AshValeCommuter AshValeCommuter (@AshValeCommuter) reported

    @NetflixUK Even PayPal comes up with the same error.

  • troutgirl Joyce Park (@troutgirl) reported

    @etrepum They solicited the donation, so they know it's about that and I'm sure they're checking Paypal obsessively. In most cases they're struggling with money problems and I get why they don't acknowledge... but I just wondered because it happens so often. Thanks!

  • _JustSpicy JustSpicy🔞 (@_JustSpicy) reported

    Dumb ***** hours are 24 hours in this house. After having issues with my Paypal credit account and going back and forth between customer service numbers I cleared my cache but ******* forget to try a different browser and that worked immediately asdfghjkl;

  • StreamCaptain Stream Captain (@StreamCaptain) reported

    @neoledah Hey there! We had some issues with the PayPal launch and had to disable it. We hope to get it back up and running this coming week.

  • grand_aspy BeardyAF 🇦🇺🇵🇭 (@grand_aspy) reported

    @AskPayPal One of your agents will get back to me to tell me it’s my banks problem. Which I find highly unlikely, considering it’s happened over two accounts, in two different countries. But sure, let’s indulge your fantasy and say they can help. I’ve sent you my email.

  • ddaenggogo DdaengGogo⁷ Group Orders [NL/BE/EU] (@ddaenggogo) reported

    @bangtans7hearts Ok so this paypal account has my mom's maiden name before she married. It's a super old paypal account like 12+ years and I always used it without problems. Now I suddenly have to proof her identity but her passport and ID has a different first name + my dad's last name :(((

  • lovetheIDOLz ʟᴜɴᴇ • SKZ TODAY ♡ (@lovetheIDOLz) reported

    FYI STAYS nobody’s bought my p2 tickets, i reuploaded them on axs for the lowest price they allowed but i’m willing to take them down & sell them for less if u have venmo or paypal. i just really want someone to use the tickets 🥺

  • AkiraSakura2 PJ Akira (@AkiraSakura2) reported

    @melissaannmeade @shawn_perera @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal In my case, it’s Philippines customer service. At least they were more open about technical problem than UK customer service as they denied that there is a problem with Ebay and PayPal checkout.

    @AskPS_UK I messaged u a few weeks ago about the issue im getting. I still cant buy a game in ps store. Ive got pics. Ive contacted the bank and paypal and no idea why.

  • AkiraSakura2 PJ Akira (@AkiraSakura2) reported

    @shawn_perera @melissaannmeade @lockatron @unsuckEBAY @AskeBay @AskPayPal I don’t know if you already know this or not - Ebay customer service told me that it is aware of the issue now and it affects 60-70% of users. I asked them when will they fix it and why did they not inform users on social media of this issue so they are on top of it. (1/2)
