I am not sure if this is the right platform/form to say/ask this.
But i am really frustrated at this time because i am not able to pay since 3rd September, Contacted support right away and never heard back from them.
I have balance in my account, my sending limits are lifted & i have a linked credit card but yet i am unable to send payments and gets the following error:
"Sorry, we weren't able to complete your payment at this time. Please try again later or choose another way to pay."
Tried to call PayPal support but guess they are closed on Fri & Sat. Someone on Reddit suggested to change of browser (looks ridiculous but as per him he was in PayPal and this can work) but nothing happened.
Will you be able to help me or maybe escalate my issue to someone from PayPal around right now so my problem can be solved?
Welcome to our Community Chat!
Unfortunately, I cannot provide account specific assistance on this platform for data protection and security reasons. It sounds like you are experiencing a security block on your account. The suggestion of changing the browser sometimes helps, but not always. If you are logging in from a different country or region, using a new device or using any VPN's or Proxy servers these might be a reason for the block. I would suggest you wait a while, say 24 hours, before trying again. Before you make a further attempt, I would advise that you clear the cache and cookies on your browser first.
Thank you for your insights. I am indeed logging in from a different country as i am using PayPal of my Employer, Can PayPal make an exception for me so i can keep working on behalf of my employer?
Maybe i was too quick couple of times on trying again but i think at least for once i tried after 24 hours & that too from a different browser (so cache & Cookies are out of question there)
Do you think if i ask the employer to process payments, it will go through? Also if an exception can be made, whom should i or my employer contact?
If you are sharing the same login details, this is probably why you are triggering our security. You can request that your employer adds you as an additional user in the Profile and Setting section of your account. I would suggest you reach out to our support if the issue persists.

Welcome to our Community Chat,
Unfortunately, I cannot discuss account specific issues on this platform. It would seem your account is set up in a country that can only send money or make payment. In this case, the payment would not have completed, and normally the sender would receive a notification that your account cannot receive payments.
I would suggest you ask the sender for the unique transaction ID for the payment and then send an email request through the secure Message Centre on your account. You will find the Message Centre in the Help section of your account. Our Customer Support will tell you if it is completed transaction or not.
Now I must contact Microvorkers.com and tell him thai I cant Recived money on my account.
They must revise this transaction and see if is processed or not.They tell me that transaction is processed but I dont recived money on my account and for this problem I send several e-mails to paypal.
Next is to contact him and send same reply who give me and they to see manualy whats happend.If transaction like you say cant be processed the must back my money or refunr.Thats is correct?Please help me with advice.
Make sure you get the unique transaction ID from them if they can see the payment is completed. The payment should return to them or is in pending status which they can cancel. I would suggest they confirm with you the email address the attempted to send the payment.
