|If you use PayPal to process payments using services such as PayFlow or WebSite Payments Pro you should be aware that PayPal are currently royally screwing up some system migration activities, leaving (thousands of ?) merchants unable to process payments.|
They are supposedly keeping merchants up to date here: https://www.x.com/community/ppx/system_status/payflowstatus/blog/2011/03/18/bulletin-system-maintenance-notification
That page hasn't been updated for the last 2 hours.
What they aren't mentioning is:
- The new endpoint for PayFlow processing is down (payflowpro.paypal.com [18.104.22.168])
- The old endpoint for PayFlow processing is also down (22.214.171.124)
- When it was up earlier delayed capture payments failed
- Anything related to trying to process new recurring payments also seems broken
Thanks PayPal !
