Original Post

Hi everyone,

There have been issues with instant payment notification from PayPal (the checkbox not getting checked in Your Etsy). From what we currently understand, there are delays from PayPal, meaning it should roll in eventually. We've contacted PayPal and suggest anyone having this issue with them do the same.

For sellers, please note that this doesn't mean that you weren't paid. Please check your PayPal account to verify payment.

Thanks, and we hope this will be resolved soon!

Thurs 3/5: PayPal payment notification delays (IPN) UPDATE

Etsy and PayPal have been working jointly to remedy problems with the IPN (instant payment notification), or payment check box in Your Etsy.

All transactions moving forward have been fixed, and should deliver a notification when the buyer has completed payment with PayPal. :)

* PayPal and Etsy are still working to deliver the delayed notifications from the past couple of days. Stay tuned.

Thank you so much for your patience.
