    Hello I started my store and did some ads, after few hours I usually get:
    1 processing order
    15 or so cancelled orders

    I am using woocommerce and PERSONAL paypal because I can't upgrade at the moment due to technical problems at paypal, I was on phone with them.
    Help please, I lost $200+ profit...

    I dont recommend selling using personal paypal. Always upgrade to business before selling, you dont want paypal to hold funds for 21 days, or sometimes enen as much as 180 days then close your account with no explanation.

    What do you mean canceled orders? They bought the product then asked you to cancel it?

    I use Braintree and Stripe! They both work great, and Braintree is owned by PayPal.

    So you are allowing your customers to pay via PayPal even if you use Stripe and Braintree gateaways?

    You think it's not technical problem? Also is it normal to have 1 successful and 15 cancelled/pending orders?

    I think those would be considered abandoned carts/checkouts. And it is normal.

    You can try optimizing your checkout process, make it easier to check out, less questions etc. Make your site look more legit, add "About us" and "contact" section. Add ssl certificate to site.

    Take someone to test the shop, invest 200$ which u lost already so he bought multiple products, from multiple categories with different payment options from different devices and you will see which place not works.. Its simple testing I dont understand how people dont do it before starting shops...
