My website is n't working, and I'm not getting any orders, these are some of the complaints I'm receiving:
I have 2 customers today who are trying to check out who could not. Our web site www.webfootersrentals.com works properly, it hands them off to the PayPal.com site to pay. They either login, or enter their credit card info, but when they click "Pay Now" an image comes up saying "Processing" then it goes away and the customer is stuck on the same screen.
Welcome to the Community!
I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing difficulties when some buyers are trying to send you payments via the PayPal website.
If they are receiving error messages when they are going through the checkout process on your website, can you please ask them to reach out to us directly and we can check this out on their side?
We can only look into failed payment attempts on a senders account so when they contact us, we can check this out for them and help the buyers to send you money.
I hope this helps.
That's the problem, there was no error message given. When the customer was on the PayPal.com page and pressed "Pay Now" the screen showed a spinning "Processing" image, then nothing happened and the customer was returned to the same PayPal page.
After being told on the phone by a PayPal customer support person that nothing was wrong since the person on the phone was using a test account with no problems, we were told to file a technical support ticket online. The technical support ticket online got back to us to tell us it wasn't a technical problem, it was a setting for "auto-sweep" that needed to be changed. We never changed that setting, never even heard of it, so we called back and talked to a customer support person who said that's a setting on the backend that we don't even have access to change. Needless to say, a very frustrating experience for us.
I'm glad everything is working again, but I hope someone codes a better way to notify customers of changes in the future.
