Paypal Slow to Confirm

Paypal Slow to Confirm

Avatar
This has been building up for a few weeks but has now got to stupid proportions! A donation made yesterday was not confirmed for 30 HOURS and, having consulted the Paypal forum, I've discovered this has been a ongoing problem for at least 6 years.

To update your account I rely on an email confirmation from Paypal to extract the necessary data to enter into your profile. The transaction itself is being displayed in my Paypal account in a timely manor but without the confirmation, I'm not even aware you've kindly donated.

Whilst this problem is on-going (it seems to be a random issue that comes and goes), please leave me a message or ticket if your account hasn't been updated within 12 hours and I will do the necessary checks and update you profile.

I apologise for Paypal's incompetence but there is little else I can do other than thank you for both your donation and your patience.

Keep in mind that a human updates the points/accounts manually (me) so some delays are down to me sleeping or whatever :lol:

This is an issue with Paypal running across multiple servers, some versions show a COMMENT field, others don't so not necessarily your fault.

Thanks for your support.

It looks like Paypal have got on top of the problem to some extent and the delay is down from 30 hours to just a few hours.

Lets hope it stays that way.

Things are greatly improved today (fingers crossed) but please don't forget that profiles are updated manually so updates are delayed while I sleep  :lol:

Paypal are back to their old tricks again… :(

Last time it coincided with the IoT DOS attack, wonder if that has anything to do with it? Paypal was one of the providers affected last time.

Yet again, Paypal notifications are not coming through.

Please accept my apologies if I do not update you account to reflect the generosity of your donation in a timely manor.

It sucks, but there is nothing I can do about it and if contacted directly, Paypal just deny any issues. If you post in their forum (there are 100's such posts), they have the audacity to reply using a BOT which provides a stock - useless answer.

Very frustrating for all concerned!

Once again, Paypal is NOT sending notifications or, if they are going to, they haven't arrived yet.

I am still waiting for a notification for a transaction that took place 8 hours ago and I'm aware of 2 more transactions that I'm unable to tie to user accounts.

For a speedy update of your account, please leave me a ticket with the Transaction ID, the amount & your user account and I will do my best to tie the information together as quickly as possible.

Update: March 3rd/4th the delay was about 18 hours, today (5th) it's down to just over 12 hours.

Do Not post information about your donations here!

If you wish to communicate regarding a donation, please use the ticket system, it's Private.

Once again, Paypal have dropped off the cliff! No email notifications or app updates!

All I can do is apologise and hope things get back to normal soon.

Very sorry.

Nick
