Paypal login problems today, not working say users

By Alan Ng - May 26, 2015

It looks like some of you are having big problems with Paypal not working today on May 26. Specifically, we can see that the Paypal sign-in is down and a constant error message that is preventing users from signing in to the service.

Right now, we are getting this error message when we try to sign-in to Paypal – “We’re unable to complete your request. Please try again shortly.”

This is happening everytime and as far as we’re aware, Paypal is down in the US as well as Europe. Hopefully this isn’t a big problem and Paypal will be back up in a matter of minutes rather than hours.


Obviously this is a service that users need working all day every day though, so we are assuming that Paypal’s technical team are already working on fixing up the problems.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on the AskPaypal Twitter account for any official status updates from the team.
