Hi,

I am a new user of Paypal. Two weeks ago I sucessfully received the first payment from a customer through Paypal. However, my second customer notified me that they had had a problem with sending money.

Did you encounter similar problems? What went wrong? Perheps my customer did something wrong.

I have a private account with unrestricted money limits.

Thanks in advance
Katarzyna

Customer's country? Nov 27, 2006

Katarzyna,

Check out the list of countries working with Paypal

Or. on the negative side, the client is making up excuses for not paying on time..

Information Nov 27, 2006

Ask the customer what went wrong; if there was an error then they received information about it and what kind of problem it was (wrong email, problem with payment, whatever) - then you could contact PP staff to clarify things.

Personally, I didn't have any problems with receiving payment so far, and there's been quite a few from diffrent places of the world.

But I'm afraid sokolniki may be right - it may be an excuse to postpone payment, especially since they didn't give you any specific information on the problem they have encountered (from your post seems like they didn't).

thank to you all... Nov 27, 2006

I do not think the problem is with the customer, the amount is rather small and I have been cooperating with them for quite some time. Good payers.

The company is based in Luxembourg, so I guess the country problem is also out of question.

I asked them about the message from the Paypal system, and am waiting for reply. We'll see about it...
