PayPal was broken

PayPal appeared to have stopped working for some users.

Users of the money-transferring service reported being unable to log in or send payments.

According to DownDetector, the issues began at approximately 4:00pm on multiple browsers.

Nearly 600 reports were been filed on the site at time of writing, with 37 per cent of people experiencing problems accessing their account, and 30 per cent of people struggling to send payments.

“Trying to make an eBay payment and it cannot load the webpage, Chrome, Edge, Safari, eBay app, all get stuck at the PayPal payment”, one commenter said.

Another added that they were seeing “Error 429” pop up, which is a HTTP error when PayPal experiences too many requests.

“Damn, PayPal checkout down on multiple sites today. Not a great day for that to happen, I suppose,” one user said.
