Default DX became wierd...

Hi,
today i was happy to see that i have 70 bucks in my bank account so i decided to order the dilda lazor ASAP before it goes back ordered. they didnt let me pay with my bank account for some reason! paypal said they only accept payments from my visa but last time i ordered from them i paid with my bank account... has this happened to anybody else?

me too... I thought it was just me.

it said:

"You must add a credit card to complete this purchase, possibly because the seller does not accept eChecks. Some payments, like instant and immediate payments, require a credit card."

I sent in a ticket on it but haven't heard back yet.

I'm pretty sure that would work... the second half of the error message it gives you is:

"This transaction amount is greater than your available PayPal balance. To complete purchase, please add a credit or debit card....."

PayPal meltdown wreaks havoc on some ecommerce websites

'Bring me the head of the IPN admins!'
By Dan Goodin in San Francisco
Published Saturday 17th May 2008 18:35 GMT

A glitch in PayPal's payment verification system is wreaking havoc on some ecommerce sites that depend on the service. For more than 48 hours, the bug in PayPal's instant payment notification has made it impossible for them to process orders, owners of these businesses complain.

Making matters worse, the glitch causes credit card holders who place orders to be billed even though they are unable to take delivery of the goods or services they've just purchased. PayPal customers began reporting the difficulty on Thursday morning and at time of publication - more than two days later - PayPal owner eBay was still struggling to fix the problem.

"We can't accept payments done with PayPal which is a really large share of our payments since most of our customers are from America and PayPal is almost a de facto standard or means for online payment there," Rikard Froberg, technical director of eClassical.com wrote in an email. "The customer knows nothing about this, orders and pays but never gets the goods he paid for, or gets them very late (for instant delivery, the patience is very short) so it looks like the store ripping the customer off."

Others are fuming, too. Denizens of this forum, among others, are calling for the head of PayPal admins, who are said to have caused the outage when updating the instant payment notification (IPN) system. They also complain that PayPal was slow to acknowledge the problem. The company didn't inform users of the glitch until Friday afternoon, more than 24 hours after complaints began rolling in.

PayPal spokeswoman Amanda Pires said Saturday that a "percentage of merchants a percentage of the time" don't receive an IPN. Company developers are scrambling to fix the problem. "We are looking at this as a high priority fix," she said. "We've been working around the clock. We're hoping to have a fix as soon as possible."

Asked to estimate that percentage of customers or the percentage of times they receive failures, Pires said it's "much less than the majority of the time."

For his part, Froberg says all IPNs to eClassical.com are broken. The Sweden-based website sells DRM-free classical music in real time, so the glitch means that it's customers have paid for files they are unable to download. Many eCommerce websites run on scripts that don't complete a transaction until an IPN is received from PayPal. eClassical.com also accepts credit card payments.

The meltdown comes as eBay is requiring some customers to use PayPal if they want to continue using the service. It also comes on the heels of Friday's discovery of serious scripting error on the PayPal site that could have enabled attackers to create convincing spoof pages that stole users' authentication credentials. It took PayPal several hours, but the company's security pros eventually squashed the security bug.

Hmm.. I'm wondering if that's the problem... I paypal'd a couple other places recently, using my bank to do echecks and it went through no problem... yet I'm still getting this error from DX.

This is the way I've always payed DX, and they've never had a problem before... maybe they just recently stopped accepting echecks. :-/

it's not suprising. I won't accept echecks. instant payments yes. they just take too long to process, and as a merchant, it's a long time to wait.
