Paypal Outage Leaves Buyers Unable to Pay

At 10:54 this morning eBay posted to its system announcement board the following announcement:

Some members may receive errors when trying to complete checkout with PayPal. We are aware of this issue and are actively working to resolve this as quickly as possible. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

There are numerous reports on twitter from buyers unable to pay their sellers. Vendio customers are also reporting this to us.

While some buyers are able to pay without problem or after multiple attempts, we are unsure how long this outage will last, how many buyers or sellers are affected.

Hopefully the buyers will not blame the sellers or rate sellers poorly because of this outage!
