    @QA_nna Reading story of PayPal initial problems with their software system & vulnerability.They used man-machine symbiosis to stay in business.None of this would have been possible without that solution. It works in testing to,automated tests discover bugs & humans analyse results

    @pulsorock @AskPayPal I haven’t had this issue before but have seen posts of other users having the same issue. I’m sure the issue is with PayPal.

    @PayPal You guys have really gone down the crapper in recent years. If you guys insist on doing text verifications to phones, it would be helpful if you worked out your own kinks before experimenting on us.

    RedwoodResistance (@CoolGreenPines) reported

    @AskPayPal Please do me a favor & pass my message along. It seems to me PP is doing nothing to make their product more helpful & appealing to customers. But they have no problem looking for ways to gouge us & charge more for services. They already took away pay-later option. They DON'T CARE

  • JaggerVillain
    Jags (@JaggerVillain) reported

    14 years of using @PayPal without a SINGLE issue and for no reason that they are willing to tell me, they have permanently frozen my account and are holding a large sum of money for 6 months. Absolutely terrible to not at least give an explanation. Tell your friends

    @PayPal just sent me mail thanking me for "choosing to skip login with PayPal One Touch™" when I did no such thing thinking there must be a defaulted-on checkbox just below the window height or they're just lying

    @AskPayPal I haven't been able to get into my PayPal account all morning. I haven't received any of the SMS 2FA messages, and I've tried so many times that the site has asked me to reset my password. Of course, when I try to do that, the login still fails.

    @Mexxie_ @Americanwolf76 Closest thing to a solution I've seen for this problem has been in @FurryNetwork using a proprietary payment system. We need to get artists off of PayPal.

    @Ryanair I’ve tried several times to pay now and it keeps looping me back to enter my card details. I’ve tried with different cards, tried with PayPal, even called my bank to make sure it’s not an issue with the card. This is incredibly frustrating can I please have some help

    @AskPayPal Well that didn’t help either. You asked to do everything I’ve already done. Maybe you should look up my email and research the issue.

    Fatso (@Fasto666) reported

    @AskPayPal Your services are broken for me, I never received any of the 2FA text messages and when I received the phone call to input my code nothing actually happened when I did. Now I'm locked out and your "customer support" phone number is endlessly resetting my password

    Right. Made a new PayPal, but there was a server bug at the moment I made it. So my account is "in account limbo" and will be for at least 3 days. Doesnt show up on the PayPal system either. Fackin Sick!

    @JeffThrow @PayPal @AskPayPal It’s not working for me either. Both 2 factor and balance check alerts are not coming through. Can’t access my PayPal account. This is unacceptable PayPal.

    @fandxmstrade because I do not have PayPal because my account always gave error. I know there are a lot of people who want to have this opportunity but I really wanted you to help me fulfill my dream of having some follow goal from my list. I am already without expectations here and it hurts

    @aardvarkwizard I've seen two other people mention similar problems with Paypal verification log-in nonsense in the past half hour too so I think they may have a slight issue

  • TheRealDying

    Oh great now @PayPal has locked my account even though I never provided a false login, you just never sent me a 2 factor SMS text! @AskPayPal #fail

    @AskPayPal 2FA login isn't working atm. Not getting any codes through text

  • KarlTreier
    Karl Treier (@KarlTreier) reported

    So now @PayPal has actually disabled the Send Text button in the app. Obviously their SMS infrastructure must be down and they are trying to stop additional requests queueing. Some info would be nice @AskPayPal

    @AskPayPal I keep trying to sign in to PayPal via the app, and since I have two factor verification on, every time I try to log in I just don’t get a code. Something is super ****** up with your app.

    Tom (@TomTheMetaIhead) reported

    @AskPayPal I have money in my paypal account then i need to draw out but all im greeted by is an error saying "We're not able to complete this transaction at the moment. Please try again later." Ive been trying all day. get back to me as its urgent.

  • Ironskull1988
    Ironskull (@Ironskull1988) reported

    @AskPayPal I did. It took days to get a response and all I got was a generic response that the case was looked into. The person got away with scamming me out of $400 and looks like nothing I do outside of contacting the BBB and contacting some high-ranking executive will fix it.
