    Okay, I'm buying some stuff from a site.
    I click on buy now button, get this pay now page.
    When I enter the details (email and password) it comes up with this:

    [​IMG]

    I'm entering the email in correct format i.e. [email protected] but it automatically changes it to UTF-8 and gives me that error.

    Anyone having the same problem?

    Hello sir, I can make this work. I also can deposit $500,000,000 into your account from my Inheritance of my father who was a King. Deal?

    Maybe its a problem with the setup of the website you are trying to buy from. You could always give PayPal a call and see what they have to say about it.

    I'm not having any other problems than the usual ones while using PayPal

    Mine is working fine .

    Try changing the registered email address , by adding another and making the new as default . That will still keep the old alive but you can use the new to log in .

    hope that helps....
