There is PayPal sign in problems right now within the Android and iPhone apps, which we have personally confirmed the iOS PayPal service is down today. It’s unclear when things were first not working, although right now everything is down with an error message pointing to server issues.
The outage means that when you try to sign in to PayPal you get the error seen within the screenshot below. In a nutshell, it basically explains there’s trouble completing your request at the moment.
You are then told to try again shortly, and if the problems persist you should then let them know. The error is titled, “Were Sorry”, which is strange considering it should be “We’re Sorry”.
Is the PayPal sign-in not working for you right now and if so, when did you first notice PayPal was down? Leave a comment below with your location and nearest city, so we can see if there’s a patten. We’ve been informed about service problems in London, UK so far.
Update: We just tried to login on a desktop computer and everything worked fine, so it looks like these issues are just with the apps at this time. We’re also getting reports people cannot pay on eBay, which makes sense considering this is the main payment method for a lot of users.
PayPal spokesperson: “We know that some of our customers may have had issues paying with PayPal for a short time today. We have resolved the problem and encourage anyone who was unable to make a payment to try again. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused“.
