PayPal.me links not working recently?

The last couple of people I've shared a paypal.me link with have reported to me that the link isn't working. When they click the link, it results in a 404 error.

I tested it out myself. When I would click the link that I sent, it always seemed to work... but when I tried the same link in Incognito Mode, it resulted in a 404 error as well.

I played around with it a bit. If I omitted the payment amount (example: https://paypal.me/NotAnActualUserName), the link seemed to work fine, and leads to the screen where the payment amount needs to be entered. However, when I tried to enter the payment amount, like I have always done (example: https://paypal.me/NotAnActualUserName/25.00), it gives me a 404 error.

Has anyone else encountered this? More importantly, does anyone know how to fix it?
