    Well, I have seen a lot of places, usually BST Threads, other services etc, where people ask for the transaction Id after payment, to confirm the Payment!


    Have you confirmed transactions using Transaction ID anytime? :rolleyes:

    Because, Paypal has different transaction ID for buyer, and seller. Payments for BST threads here are verified by transaction ID, and I still dont get how it gets done. And like ways, almost all online transactions.

    A Lot of my buyers do give me transaction id, but I just confirm it with the time of the payment and email!

    Can some one shed me some light? Is it just me?


    So in the end, is it just for Paypal to pick the transaction? And How do you people confirm the payment with transaction ID?

    P.S : It would be better to make yourself sure before you try to prove me I am wrong, because, I even did a transaction to just test it out :)

    I always ask for paypal email rather than the id, as it is impossible to confirm thru transaction id or I guess I havent yet found out how to figure out using transaction id, till then its gonna be me verifying using PP email add

    Yah, I don't know why some of my clients give me their transaction ID. I always ask them about their paypal email so I can confirm the payment.

    I don't know what's the use of the transaction ID, I tried to check when buyers send me their ID. But I always get different numbers. I just check it with the email.

    If you go into PayPal, then go to the "find a transaction" screen and type in either transaction ID (the one you get or the one the buyer gets) it will still show the associated transaction.

    If you know the estimated time of sale for the buying party then you can click the transactions and within the detailed statement there is a transaction id. When I used to sell on DP (ages ago) I used to ask them to verify their purchase with the transaction id since I know there are a lot of scammers on the board... easy and simple no transaction id or incorrect and no service / product.

    And if I do what you said, I would be having a transaction Id that buyer gives, and another one on the details page!

    That is what the thread was for. To get it solved out, or find the right way to do it!

    Well, Crazyflx said a way, and I gotta check that :)

    Yeah he is right.,
    if you have the confusion, just go to and enter the PP trans id on "find a transaction" both the trans id will show the same payee details

    I think you verify it by the mail which the PP sent you and the client sent u, those trans id's will not match :)

    Hit the Jackpot here.

    GO to all transactions and look for the find a transaction link

    In there paste the transaction ID and select the drop down menu from the default Email into transaction ID's

    If the ID is valid, it will send you to the corresponding transaction it is related to automatically by Paypal.


    Paypal has some sort of weird website architecture and making everything very hard for normal people. Even making buttons takes 10 minutes to search and find the right way...... :confused:
