Classic View - Gone? (ugh)

Well, so far, for years, I've been able to figure out a link to get around "the new look" of paypal, and actually get more work done...

Now it seems to be impossible to find again...

Please, anyone... why do they keep punishing us with "the new look"...?

 

If you have found a solution, please advise...

 

Peace

Don't think there's a work around anymore - it takes some time to get used to the updated interface and navigating to the features you want to use - I've found a few quarks you may or may not run into but, Tech Support was able to provide some quick fixes.

For a while, I was able to access the classic view, but cannot find it.

Paypal should bring this back.

I agree the trend is to make users answer each others question, drop features, raise prices and monopolize the arena.  Any alternatives?, and paypal was one of the best services online they even paid interest on the account when they were in not a US cronie, oh well its been a good run.

 

If against the offs they should make things easy again please inform me before I move even more clients off the ebay/paypal division of Amazon

I miss having the time of the transaction on the activity which I could only find in the classic view. It makes a difference to me when people purchase items separately and later want a refund, or if I dont get payment notifications through via email, I need to see quickly what time people paid so I dont send the same order twice. It's on the email notifications, so I dont see why Paypal cant add it to the activity info.

GIMME BACK THE TIME!

Please.

Pretty please.

Finally the link to the classic view no longer works.

This is a Classic (sic) example of a company not listening to its customers.

The Classic view was all I wanted and needed to efficiently run my business.

As an ex Development manager I find using the new pages offensively inefficient.

PayPal is now costing me money.

Without Classic View there is NO way to cancel an ECHECK that is hanging in Pending forever....  Help Desk says Recipient can cancel in their History Screen , while reading from an old Google help script that was based off CLASSIC VIEW.  In the NEW Forced Interface, there is No HISTORY with ANY  selectable Action that you can do e xcept for an huge ARCHIVE Button in The Activity column.    No human help to look at the new interface screen to see there is no cancel option.  Guess no programming quality control .  Wonder why they did not notice how many people were clicking on Classic View when given the option over their new interface look.   Forced to block echecks to prevent this from happening in the future.  Very Sad...........
