PayPal Problems

Paypal is one of the most well know online payment systems, although in previous reports users have mentioned problems when trying to transfer money, signing into the app or even depositing money via a credit card. Plus, it’s not always the small issues, which can cause stress, it’s also when there’s sometimes an outage and the server has trouble with the connection.

    Paypal won’t let me pay for item yet my card details are correct and credit card valid.

  • Barry Fountain

    When I try to buy something from ebay and select ‘paypal’ it asks me to log in (as normal) but then the paypal page appears and asks me to ‘add a card’. I put my card details into the relevant boxes and click ‘add’ the page then just refreshes still complete with my card info and won’t actually add the card. However this card is on the paypal system and has been also confirmed by entering the relevant code. So at the moment I can’t purchase anything on ebay via paypal.

  • YTimmer

    I can’t remeber my password, but everytime I enter my email-address for password recovery “something went wrong on their side”. It’s been a couple of days in a row now, why can’t I get a recovery mail?

  • Shirley Cara Tubera

    I cannot login to my Paypal account. Access Denied. Why? I used the same server when I opened the account yet now access is denied.

  • Brandon Orme

    I had the same issue, it goes straight into your bank account you used to pay with.

  • Jen Smith

    Hi i am waiting for a refund from an online store and 2 payments from eBay buyers. All of the transactions have been paid but no money is showing in my account. I’ve logged an issue with PayPal-no response!!

  • Daniel Lund Pedersen

    Me too

  • Marianne Cu Gomez

    Hello, I can’t login with my paypal account. I know my password is correct but the paypal does not allow me to login. Please help me.

  • Frankandbetty

    Paypal ‘fix issues’ but does not show me what the issues are and now unable to pay for ebay items

  • Eddie Stevenson-Kaatsch

    Both eBay and PayPal are experiencing extreme issues at the same time. While i appreciate they both lack a moral compass, possibly due to their common ancestry, I am inclined to believe that there is some sort of hack going on that has messed up their servers. The lack of admission and absense of customer contact is unforgivable and is just the kind of thing that could provide a tipping point which destroys their business. Too many people rely on these businesses for their livelihood and turnover, for it to be possible for them to wriggle out of their responsability by quoting disclaimer clauses. Gross incompetance is not a legal defence, rather a finger of guilt.

  • nena

  • Julie Magee

    I’m trying to pay a money request as a guest with my credit card,which I’ve done numerous times in the past, but it keeps saying that it can’t complete the transaction. Anybody else have this problem? Any suggestions?

  • Del_Boy_Trotter

    Just managed to figure out a solution to the problem of not being able to log in as of today.
    Issue is linked it seems to fingerprint security.
    Uninstall the PayPal here app.
    Then set up fingerprint security on your phone and register a fingerprint.
    Reinstall PayPal here and log in on WIFI on your phone. On first use of installed app it will ask if you want to register a fingerprint for access.
    Select yes and scan your print and you should then find your app is working fully on your phone normally via 3g or 4g etc.
    This worked for me on my samsung galaxy S6 edge

  • Del_Boy_Trotter

    Cant log in on phone since update yesterday…

    I have tried to login in multiple times on my main personal Paypal account and it keeps telling me my information is invalid and theres something wrong with my e-mail when in fact my email is working just fine. It just won’t let me into my account.

  • Lisa G

    I’m concerned that it’s telling me my information is not correct and won’t let me log in. I’ve changed password successfully twice then won’t accept the new information when I log in? Is this happening to others?

  • Pen E Lane

    It seems that they fixed it, for now anyway. I never contacted them, but I’m sure others have and hopefully yours will be fixed soon!

  • Karen

  • Karen Rodger

  • steve

  • James carnall

    Yip I’ve tried paying for an item l have won on eBay,
    But it won’t let me pay by PayPal, instead it’s asking me to use a different option, pay by credit card, which sounds a bit dodgy, like someone may of hacked in and is asking people for there credit card details…

  • M.archer

    Im also unable to select paypal as a payment option on ebay. It only loads a blank screen. This is really frustrating

  • pothead-dayz

  • Socer Miller

  • Socer Miller

    Hi All , i can’t log in my PayPal account , and i can’t reset my password by their site , i don’t find any option which can help me , what i must do , any solution please ????

  • Blu FörlÃ¥t

    For the past 2 days I am unable to purchase anything with my paypal account on eBay or anywhere else, have contacted both paypal and eBay but neither of the them have responded, am getting very frustrated!

  • Ed Lopez

    You should contact them directly. I had the same problem and they resolved it the same day. This was something that was going on with many of them. Sometimes it is due to one of you credit cards expiring soon that may be connected to your account. That was my situation. There could be other reasons. Remember, this is for your protection. Some of the things that occur may be a reminder to stay connected and alert with all of your personal and business accounts. I don’t work for PayPal but I am a user and very rarely have problems with them but when I do they resolve it right away.

  • Lee
