    I recently sent a payment with Paypal to fiveer but it doesn't look like the vendor received it.

    Has anyone else here had the same problem today?

    yes!!! i tried to pay for an item on ebay via paypal. I had to pay like 3 times to get it working. Then an hour later 3 emails came to me saying that i sent a payment 3 times, so i had to get refunded 2 of the payments. Pain in the ass. and for a company who make millions (possibly billions) this shouldnt happen

    i heard chinese guys hacked database of paypal sometimes ago. and they also hacked in google's stuff so seregy brin got angry and stop all google things in china and said chinese will be better without google. sergey brin is a really great person.
    i worship him everyday cause maybe he will index my poor blog on first page of google search.

    It's gonna suck if paypal is using this as an excuse to "misplace" payments.

    Probably a good day to stay away from paypal. Sounds like there could be all kinds of headaches trying to figure out payment issues. No thanks.

    They are just unable to send notifications which means the systems of respective providers aren't being updated and hence the problems. It should be a short-term niggle though. Those that have IPNs set-up will do just fine. :)

    Oh, and in times like these, there will be multiple conspiracy theories. :)

    My payment went through twice on ebay after it failed at 8am this morning it went through at 10:36 without my permission at that time, i didn't see it re-payed on ebay at lunch. So annoying!

    Probably best to stay away from Paypal today all together. I first heard of the issue because of the Fiverr website notification. I hope it's nothing serious going on because I need to withdrawal money soon!!
