    paypal: what is it playing at ?

    Hi there.

    I just spent ages launching a discount scheme for my website. I set up a Palpal account to accept credit card orders.

    I launched it tonight and it went 100% pear shaped as paypal was not accepting *any* payments from anyone !?

    I am based in the UK and 90% of my orders will come from the UK>

    Does anyone has any knowledge that they can share with me ?

    I need a fast fix to this. Help would be great

    Regards,

    veedee

    Umm...what? Pear shaped?

    If paypal is not excepting payments, its probably planned/unplanned downtime at the paypal datacenter. Not much anyone can do, if that is the case.

    That's the risk of using a payment portal like PP as your main payment source instead of a CC. If they go down, you go down.
