Apple.com purchase raises Fraud Alert, unable to make payment

I have purchased something from apple.com and used PayPal for the payment. Apple only charges the PayPal account when they ship the product, which is several days later than the date of order. Apple is now trying to ship my item and requesting payment. I get a fraud alert on phone, which I approve, but Apple.com only requests the payments every several hours via automated system. So when I approve my payment, PayPal message comes back saying "please attempt your purchase again". Guess what? Apple.com doesn't attempt the purchase again for several hours. So the vicious cycle continues without the payment going through. Can I turn off these fraud alerts from PayPal temporarily so allow the payment? I don't want to cancel apple.com order and reorder it, if possible. Thank you.
