Money pool issues - incorrect contribution balance


Money pool issues - incorrect contribution balance

Hi all,


I set up a pp money pool and I have been tracking contributions on a spreadsheet. The balance is incorrect by enough to be concerning. I spent a few hours tracking the contributions individually to determine the same conclusion.


I did receive an email a couple of weeks ago saying that there had been a problem with my money pool which had been fixed with no further info as to what it was.


 I have raised this with pp by web form and by phone and was advised on the latter that it is a known issue that is being worked on as a priority and that I should be resolved in 24 hours.


The email response advised that while there is a known issue I should not have been told a timeline to fix, because there isn't one.


See below:

Has anyone else experienced this and had it fixed and in what timeline? It seems a bit ludicrous that this service is live if these errors are occurring?

Re: Money pool issues - incorrect contribution balance

Currently having this problem with two of the contributions to my pool. 1 person sent $5 and $3 went to pool. The second person sent $5 and $2.93 went to pool. I don't get it cause all other contributions had no problem.
