We have tried pinging Paypal website using our server and the website returned the above results. If paypal.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Paypal - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I haven't had access to my pay pal account for about two days. I log on it kicks out my password, change password and when i sign in it says it is a wrong password, don't know how many times I have changed the password trying to get in, I have orders to pay for and can't access the account. I even tried paying directly from my debit card and still didn't get anywhere. Getting kind of tired of this problem, it is not the first time it has happened.

I can't use paypal with eBay or anything else for that matter. If it lets me log in it won't finish the transaction. It keeps saying try again later. Last week it kept saying I needed to add a credit card and then would say it was invalid. But I could still use the mobile app. Now the mobile app won't even work. The login page has the email and phone login mixed together to where you can't even get logged in.

I added a product to a PayPal cart, sign in in Firefox with the correct email and password, and it said incorrect username or password, and displayed a capcha box, which I played the audio for to ensure it was correct, still didn't work.

Disabled popup blocker, no difference.

Tried using Chrome, worked fine first time, no errors, with popup blocker turned on.

For the second time this week Paypal tells me it doesn't recongize the computer I'm on...and the only choice I have is to receive an automated phone call. AND when I select my HOME number as the number to call - Paypal says "this number is not valid please choose another"..when I had this fixed last week, I had to give them my credit card info in order to verify my account, that seemed weird but since I called Paypal I knew it was them. So I did it and got a new password and could log in THAT DAY. But not TOday when I want to buy something! So ticked off and there is absolutely NO informatoin on paypal website to let us know what's going on. I have security questions that I should be able to answer to get into my account...but I am not given that option. The first customer service rep I talked to when I had this problem last week said the fault lay with the security on my laptop or my service provider - ridiculous - took me an hour to get nowhere with that person. And at 8 p.m. on a Sunday there are NO customer service hours. Anyone else locked out with same message?

Rec'd a message from "PayPal", however, it was in my junk mail, so I ignored it, figuring it was one of those scam messages. After that, I tried to go into my PP account to see if there was in fact a problem, and I keep getting this era message: "We're having some trouble completing your request. Please try again shortly". I guess the message I had rec'd, was possibly legit, but since I blocked it, I can't retrieve it. I do recall it saying something about going into the "Resolution Center", however, in order to do that, I need to log in. I guess if this problem persists, I will contact PP at 1-888-221-1161.
