    Just found out today that Paypal is undergoing massive system updates after some sort of failure over the weekend. This also explains why several people have contacted me saying that they can not purchase stuff from me due to Paypal errors. After speaking with a rep, their entire backend system is being upgraded and because of this several systems are going to function rather strange.

    Personally, I did not undergo any problems until this morning when I found out that people who visit one of my sites could not purchase anything and that I could not log in to Paypal. In addition, for about 2 hours this morning, all charges via my Paypal Debit Card were declined (which kind of sucks because half of my funds are in Paypal (split between my main and money market accounts) and the other half are in my checking account.

    As of 3:05pm CST (Monday, Oct 11, 2004), people can finally purchase things from my site or from my auctions, my debit cards work, but I can not log in to the website.

    Thanks for the info. I just had an eBay auction end, so I'll know what's going on just in case. :)
